BLAIRSVILLE, GA (AP) - Authorities say three people died and another was injured when a single-engine plane crashed near a north Georgia airport.

News outlets report authorities say the passenger wounded in the Wednesday night crash at the Blairsville Airport was taken to a trauma center. The condition of the passenger was not immediately known.

Authorities did not immediately release the names of those involved in the crash. Blairsville is about 100 miles (160 kilometers) north of Atlanta and is in Union County, which borders North Carolina.
