ANCHORAGE — Investigators with the National Transportation Safety Board on Sunday reached the scene of a plane crash in remote southwest Alaska that killed four people and injured six on Friday night.
Bad weather kept investigators from reaching the site where a single-engine aircraft went down near the village of Saint Marys.
‘‘It’s way too early to draw any conclusions,’’ said Clint Johnson, the chief of the NTSB’s Alaska regional office, who added that two of the agency’s investigators were sent to the scene. Another NTSB investigator in Anchorage is hoping to interview survivors of the crash, he said.
The Hageland Aviation Cessna 208 crashed at around 6:30 p.m. Friday, four miles from Saint Marys. It left Bethel on a scheduled flight for Mountain Village and eventually Saint Marys but never reached Mountain Village.
The airplane would have been flying in freezing rain with a mile of visibility and a 300-foot ceiling.
