Authorities have released the names of the three people killed in a small airplane crash in McLeod County Wednesday morning.

Killed in the crash were 52-year-old Stuart Dahlberg and his wife 36-year-old Ivelisse of Brooklyn Center, and his mother, 76-year-old Mae Dahlberg of St. Cloud. The three were reportedly on their way to Colorado.

Authorities say the plane went down in a field about four miles north of Glencoe near the intersection of Falcon Avenue North and 150th Street at shortly after 11am.

McLeod County Sheriff Scott Rehmann says witnesses at the scene reported hearing a “popping noise.”

An investigation into what caused the single-engine Beechcraft Bonanza aircraft to crash is underway.
