Small plane crashes while landing at Sedona Airport; 2 hurt


SEDONA, Ariz. (AP) — Two people were hospitalized after a small plane crashed while landing at the Sedona Airport in northern Arizona, authorities said.

Federal Aviation Administration officials said the Cessna C182 veered off the runway around 8:30 a.m.

The plane clipped a parked aircraft, struck a fuel truck and then flipped over.

An FAA spokesman said three people were aboard the plane.

Sedona Fire Department officials said two people were transported to a hospital. Their names, ages and conditions weren’t immediately available.

An FAA spokesperson said the agency will be investigating the cause of the crash, which has closed the airport runway and forced flights into Sedona to be diverted Sunday afternoon.
