A 17-year-old boy, his parents and a 67-year-old pilot - all of whom lived in Southern California - were identified Saturday as the victims of a plane crash north of Harrisburg.

Shortly after 3 o'clock Friday afternoon the Johnson County Sheriff's Office was notified of a crash near 2383 IWV Rd Sw in rural Johnson County.

In 2012, four people were killed in a plane crash near Veneta.

Investigators with the National Transportation Safety Board and Federal Aviation Administration arrived at the crash site about 4:40 p.m. Friday.

Linn County Sheriff Bruce Riley said the plane plowed into a field about 100 miles (160 kilometers) south of Portland.

Authorities say witnesses reported seeing the plane flying low before turning and crashing into a grass field two miles north of Harrisburg. Aletky was hired by the Utah business and was a certificated pilot, authorities said.

The airplane was a single engine, 1965 Piper Cherokee 180.

Johnson County Sgt. Brad Kunkel says officials don't yet know what caused the crash or where the plane was headed.
