WHITESVILLE, Ky. – A plane crash in the woods near New Panther Creek Church in Ohio County claimed the lives of two, an instructor and a student, amid severe weather conditions. 

According to Ohio County KY Sheriffs Office reports, on Wednesday evening, Evansville Airport controllers lost contact with a Piper PA-28 aircraft en route from Bowling Green to Owensboro.
