(KNX 1070) -  We're getting reports that a second plane has crashed at Brackett Field in LaVerne, just hours after a plane went down Sunday night, killing one person and badly injuring another.  

Federal investigators will be picking through the scene of Sunday night's crash site. 

Sunday's crash happened close to the Brackett Field Airport.  Audio from radio transmissions indicate there was a problem with the engine. The plane went down in a plant nursery. A short time later, someone in the tower apparently called for help.

The man onboard was dead at the scene while the woman was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.  

The plane did not catch fire. Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board are expected to be working at the site.
