LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – The names have been released of the victims in a Wednesday evening plane crash in Jefferson County, Arkansas.

A news release issued Thursday by the Arkansas State Police (ASP) says a Polk County man died when the aircraft he was piloting went down in a wooded area near the Grant County line.

He’s been identified as Phillip Sloan, 66, of Mena. A passenger in the aircraft survived. The ASP says Ross Goodner, 19, of Boles (Scott County) was injured in the crash and taken from the scene by ambulance to a Pine Bluff hospital.
