    Investigators say a pilot has been killed in the crash of his small plane in an East Texas neighborhood.

    The Texas Department of Public Safety on Thursday identified the victim as 51-year-old Stephen Annis of Huntsville.

    DPS says the plane went down Wednesday afternoon in a subdivision in the Bullard area, about 100 miles southeast of Dallas.

    Authorities say Annis was alone during the crash in a wooded area near Lake Palestine (PAL'-uhs-teen). Pieces of wreckage were scattered among the trees and on a road.

    Investigators are trying to determine what caused the crash.
