Two people in a single-engine plane died Sunday afternoon when the aircraft crashed into the roadway near Petaluma Municipal Airport, authorities said.

The crash was reported about 4:05 p.m. on East Washington Street, a busy four-lane road that runs past the airport and the Rooster Run Golf Club, said Battalion Chief Mike Weihman with the Rancho Adobe Fire District. No other injuries were reported.
