Authorities say a Texas family of two adults and two children were killed when their single-engine airplane crashed during takeoff in northern New Mexico.

It happened Sunday in Angel Fire and involved a plane owned by a company in Scottsville, Texas.

The cause of the crash is under investigation and identities of the victims haven't been released. But airport weekend relief manager Carl Shilcutt told the Albuquerque Journal that the plane carried a San Antonio family.

Angel Fire is 150 miles northeast of Albuquerque.
