ROSSVILLE, INDIANNA - Authorities say no one survived when a small Wisconsin-bound plane carrying multiple people crashed into a central Indiana farm field.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel is reporting Prominent Kewaunee County businessman John Pagel and his son-in-law were among those killed.

Carroll County Sheriff Tobe Leazenby  says the plane crashed Thursday night just north of Rossville, Indiana. The rural area is about 60 miles northwest of Indianapolis.

Indiana State Police say the plane was a Cessna 441 Conquest Turboprop.

It had taken off from the Eagle Creek Airport in Indianapolis and was headed to Green Bay, Wisconsin.

State Police spokesman Sergeant Kim Riley said early Friday that investigators hadn't yet confirmed how many people were on the plane.
 
He says wreckage was spread over a large area.

Officials haven't released identities of those killed.

Federal aviation investigators were expected at the scene Friday.
