By B.J. Williams News Director

The pilot of a single-engine plane that crash-landed Saturday in Forsyth County has been identified as the person who was killed in the accident. 

Ernesto Antonio Arteaga-Membreno, 28, from Grayson, died at the scene of the crash on Browns Bridge Road near Waldrip Circle, according to the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office. 

Two passengers on board the plane were injured. Litsu Chen, 30, from Lawrenceville, remained hospitalized at last report with non-life threatening injuries while Shen Yang Wu, 25, from Duluth, has already been released from the hospital.

Local investigators determined the crash happened around 5 p.m. on April 28. When fire and law enforcement arrived at the scene, they found the plane on an embankment with one wing of the plane on the south side of Browns Bridge Road. A passenger vehicle traveling west on the roadway was clipped by the plane; the occupants of the car were not injured.

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) continues its investigation into the crash.
