The Ottawa police said that after the collision, the smaller plane crashed near McGee Side Road while another plane was redirected to Ottawa International Airport.

Two aircrafts collided mid-air over Ottawa's west end on Sunday, which led to one of them crashing in a nearby field, the police said. It crashed within a couple of kilometres of Carp Airport, located 30 kilometres west of Ottawa.

It's not clear what type of aircraft were involved in the collision. Neither that pilot nor his one passenger were injured, emergency services said.

Ottawa paramedics responded to the crash and pronounced the occupant of the Cessna dead at the scene.

The pilot of the plane that landed at Ottawa International Airport said that the other aircraft hit the bottom of his plane, affecting his right landing gear, CBC reported. The pilot of the crashed plane was killed in the incident, Ottawa paramedics have confirmed.

The plane that crashed was a Cessna 150.

The Transportation Safety Board of Canada says the plane at the airport sustained minor damage.
