Authorities say nine people have been killed after a plane crashed in South Dakota.

Harsh wintry weather is keeping federal investigators from reaching the site in South Dakota where a single-engine plane crashed, killing nine people and injuring three others.

12 people were on board the plane and three were transported to Sioux Falls for medical treatment.

The Pilatus PC-12 was carrying 12 people and had taken off at the Chamberlain Municipal Airport and was heading to Idaho Falls, Idaho, KELO-TV reported. The Chamberlain area was under a winter storm warning and the National Weather Service said visibility was a small distance from the airport.
