The new chief executive of a central Florida hospital system has been killed in a small plane crash.

The Ocala Star Banner reports that P. Allen Golson was piloting the twin-engine Cessna when it went down south of the Ocala International Airport.

Golson recently had been named CEO of Ocala Health System.

He had served as CEO of Coliseum Health System in Macon, Ga. for seven years before taking the Ocala job.

Marion County officials say Golson's wife, Carol, was taken to a hospital with injuries that weren't considered life-threatening.

The hospital she was taken to is part of the Ocala Health System.
