NEW MILFORD — A man is dead and two people are injured after a plane from Danbury Municipal Airport crashed at Candlelight Farms Airport, officials said.

Authorities with the Federal Aviation Administration confirmed that the plane, a Cessna 172, departed Danbury Airport and crashed at the end of the runway in New Milford.

Grabner said one of the crash victims, an injured man, walked to a nearby home and the homeowner called police around 9:50 a.m. Police arrived at the airport within minutes. The man was taken to Danbury Hospital by ambulance.
