A plane crash just north of Lloydminster has left one man dead and a farmhouse damaged.

The crash happened just after noon near Range Road 11, north of Lloydminster.

Freelance photographer Don Whiting arrived on the scene, about two miles north of town, shortly after police and emergency crews and described what he saw.

"It was a plane crash in a field, it skidded across a shelter-belt and skidded across a yard up against a house, a rural acreage house," said Whiting. "Apparently there was a bit of a fire because you can see some burn damage and some melted siding."
