VICTORIA, Texas (AP) — One person was killed in the crash of a small cargo airplane in south Texas, authorities said.

Air traffic controllers lost radio contact with the single-engine Cessna 208 shortly after 8 p.m. Monday near Victoria, about 125 miles southwest of Houston, according to the Federal Aviation Administration. The FAA said the wreckage of the aircraft was found in a field about 4 miles north of Victoria.

The Texas Department of Public Safety said the pilot was killed in the crash.

Houston TV station KHOU reported that the plane had been contracted to carry UPS packages. The company said in a statement that the crash did not involve a UPS aircraft or employees and that the plane had been traveling from Victoria to Houston.

Authorities didn’t immediately release the pilot’s name.
