Two men in their 20s are dead after a small Cessna 150 plane crashed Monday in a field along Highway 30 in Les Cèdres, west of Montreal.

The Sûreté du Québec (SQ) received a call about the crash at 6:45 p.m. The two men were transported to hospital, where they later died.

The Transportation Safety Board (TSB) has sent a team of investigators to the crash site.

"The TSB will gather information and assess the occurrence," the agency wrote in a press release.
