Four Injured In Las Vegas, New Mexico Plane Crash
A single-engine plane crashed while landing at a northern New Mexico airport, injuring all four people aboard, including one critically.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Lynn Lunsford says the pilot was hospitalized in critical condition while the three passengers on the plane suffered less serious injuries in the crash at the Las Vegas airport late Wednesday.
Identities were not released but FAA records indicate the plane is registered to a man with an address in Chanhassen, Minnesota.
Lunsford says the plane was flying to Las Vegas from Ames, Iowa.
Las Vegas Police Chief Christian Montano did not immediately return a call for comment.
