A plane belonging to Roy Halladay has crashed in the Gulf of Mexico by Pasco County in Florida, according to multiple reports. According to local media, the plane went down around 1 p.m. off Holiday, Fla., which is just north of Clearwater.

The view from SkyFOX over the scene showed a small white plane upside down in the water.

Reports out of Florida matched the plane's registration number to Halladay's own ICON A5 light sport aircraft, which he has posted frequently about since seemingly acquiring the airplane on October 17. We have not confirmed survivors at this point.

Halladay spent 16 seasons in the major leagues with the Toronto Blue Jays and Phillies. He pitched the 20th flawless game in Major League Baseball history in 2010, and threw the second no-hitter in postseason history later that season.

CNN, which also reported on the case being dropped, said the USA attorney's office did not give a reason for dropping the charges. Her first trial this past May resulted in a conviction that a judge later threw out in July, for reasons we wrote about here.

Halladay won the Cy Young award twice and pitched a no-hitter for the Philadelphia Phillies in 2010.

The Pasco County Sheriff's Office has called a 4:30 p.m. ET press conference in the case.

He married Brandy Gates on November 27, 1998 and the couple had two children together.
