HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — Two people were killed and three others injured Saturday night in the crash of a small private plane near Henderson Executive Airport, authorities said. The single-engine Beechcraft Sierra plane took off from the runway, had a mechanical issue and turned around in an attempt to land when it crashed south of the airport, Henderson spokeswoman Kathleen Richards told The Las Vegas Review-Journal.
The plane caught fire, authorities said.
The Henderson Fire Department responded about 7:45 p.m., the newspaper reported.
One person died at the scene, and the other person died at a hospital, Richards said. One person had serious injuries, and another person had minor injuries.
A Good Samaritan who tried to help rescue the people in the plane suffered minor injuries from smoke inhalation, firefighters said
