    One person is dead after a small aircraft crashed Wednesday night just south of Argyle in Denton County, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.

     

    William Graves, 52, was the only person on the twin-engine Cessna plane that reportedly went down while on approach to the Denton Municipal Airport, the Federal Aviation Administration told NBC 5.

    The crash scene was located near in the vicinity of a construction site near the intersection of U.S. 377 and Farm-to-Market Road 407. Officials said Denton County emergency dispatchers received several calls at about 9 p.m. from residents hearing a low-flying plane.

    The crash remains under investigation by DPS and the FAA, and further information, including the identity of the pilot, has not been released.
