TOPPING, VA (WWBT) - A second person has died from a plane crash in Middlesex on Sunday.

Misty Dawn McIntyre of Newport passed away as a result of her injuries, according to State Police. She was in the plane piloted by Stephen L. Myers when it went down in the Topping area of the county around 5 p.m.

Officials say the plane was taking off from Hummell Field Airport, about a half mile from where it crashed. The owner of the home closest to where the plane crashed says he pulled McIntyre from the plane. She was tangled in seatbelts. McIntyre was taken to Norfolk General Hospital in critical condition.

Volunteer firefighters arrived on the scene in minutes. Crews stopped the plane from leaking jet fuel.

A witness said he heard the plane making unusual noises, while circling multiple times prior to the crash.

The crash is still an active Virginia State Police, FAA, and NTSB investigation.
