Small plane crashes on Arizona street while making emergency landing


PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities in Prescott, Arizona, say a single-engine plane reportedly running low on fuel crashed while making an emergency landing on a street, injuring the three people involved.

Police say the pilot and two passengers in the plane when it crashed Tuesday night were hospitalized for non-life-threatening injuries. Their identities were not released and no additional information about their injuries was immediately available.

The plane crashed about 7 miles (11 kilometers) short of the Prescott airport. The flight from the Los Angeles area was heading to Prescott.

Police say the plane had a wing shorn off and rolled onto its roof, possibly after striking a light pole.

Police also say there were no injuries when a vehicle rear-ended a car that stopped to avoid the plane.
