KINGMAN, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - A woman is dead, and a man is in the hospital after a plane crash in Mohave County on Sunday morning.

The crash happened around 11:45 a.m. about 100 yards away from a Mohave County Parks Ranger Station near Pine Lake, which is about 15 miles southeast of Kingman.

A man and the woman were in the plane when it went down.

The woman died at the scene. She has been identified as 38-year-old Heidi Sue Dowland of Prescott Valley. 

The man in the plane has been identified as 43-year-old Christopher Adam Anderson of Prescott Valley. He was transported to a Las Vegas hospital and is listed in critical condition.
