PHOENIX — The pilot of a small plane died Saturday night after crashing near Phoenix Goodyear Airport, according to the Goodyear Fire Department.

Goodyear police say a Phoenix police helicopter located a Cessna on its roof about one mile south of the airport near Vineyard Avenue and Estrella Parkway.

Initial reports indicate that the plane struck power lines before crashing, according to authorities.

Firefighters also said that the pilot was the only one aboard the aircraft.

High voltage lines are reported to be down as ground crews attempt to make access to the plane.

Officials said that the FAA and NTSB will investigate.
