Spring Hill, Fla. - A small plane crash just north of Tampa has killed a pilot flying from Fort Myers to Illinois. Sheriff's deputies say Scott Tezak was shuttling his small plane from Page Field back to his home when the crash happened.

The plane crashed into a wooded area, while the pilot landed in front of a witnesses home. The NTSB is looking into what caused the plane to go down.
