TEMPLETON, Calif. (AP) — A spokesman for the San Luis Obisbo County sheriff's office says two people have died in a plane crash at a private airstrip in the town of Templeton.

Sheriff's spokesman Tony Cipolla says witnesses reported seeing the single-engine Piper Cub take off, lurch to the right and then spiral into an open field at about 10 a.m. Saturday.

Cipolla says the people who died were the pilot and a passenger, both male. Their identities are not being released until relatives are notified.

Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration are headed to the crash site.

Templeton is a little more than five miles south of Paso Robles.
