Indiana State Police say two men have died after the crash of an ultralight aircraft in southwest Indiana. Trooper Eric Russell said the plane crashed at 6:15 p.m. Tuesday in a soybean field just south of the Shawnee Field grass airstrip in Greene County's Fairplay Township.

Deputy Coroner David Rollison says the victims' names won't be released until next of kin are notified. Autopsies are scheduled for Wednesday morning at Regional Hospital in Terre Haute.

Russell says the Federal Aviation Administration has been contacted.

Members of the Switz City Fire Department and Worthington Police Department also were on the scene.
