ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Authorities say a plane crash near the remote western Alaska village of Saint Marys killed four of the 10 people aboard.

Alaska State Troopers spokeswoman said Saturday that the pilot and three passengers died in the Friday night crash.

An airline spokeswoman says she understood that the six survivors were injured.

Kathy Roser, a spokeswoman for Era Alaska airline, says the turboprop Cessna 208 was a Hageland Aviation flight from Bethel to Mountain Village and Saint Marys. Hageland is part of Era Alaska.

Jim Hickerson, president of Hageland Aviation, also told the Anchorage Daily News the six survivors were injured.

There was no immediate word on what might have cause the crash. The NTSB says it will investigate.

Saint Marys is roughly 470 miles from Anchorage.
