Small plane crashes after mid-air collision near Kanata

Two aircrafts collided mid-air over Ottawa's west end on Sunday, which led to one of them crashing in a nearby field, the police said.

Carp is approximately 30 kilometres west of downtown Ottawa.

It is still unclear how many passengers were on the two planes when they crashed.

The second plane, a turboprop Piper PA-42, was rerouted to Ottawa's worldwide airport, where it landed safely, a Transport Canada spokesperson told AFP, adding that the incident was under investigation.

It's not clear what type of aircraft were involved and how the collision occurred. The other aircraft was redirected to Ottawa International Airport and safely landed there.

Police and paramedics are attending the crash site.

Ottawa paramedics and police are at the scene. The pilot was killed in the crash.

A CTV Ottawa reporter said the incident took place at Carp Airport - a popular home base for Canada's general aviation enthusiasts.

"One aircraft fell out of the sky and unfortunately there was a fatality", said Beverley Harvey, a senior investigator with the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB).
