JOHNSON COUNTY, Iowa  --  Witnesses of the Johnson County plane crash that took place on Friday are now telling authorities what they saw.

Following the crash, a father and son drove to the scene and called 911. The son said he saw the plane spinning out of control before doing a nose dive into a corn field near Oxford.

Once there, they said the remains were "horrific" and there was nothing they could do.

Two people were killed in the crash, and they have now been identified as 70-year-old Terry Koehn of Iowa City and 56-year-old James Spicer of Cedar Rapids, according to KWWL.

It is not yet clear who was flying the plane when it crashed, and investigators are still working to determine the cause.
