Small plane bound for Phoenix area crashes in Nevada, 1 dead

PHOENIX — At least one person was killed when a small plane headed for a suburban Phoenix airport crashed in southern Nevada and started a wildfire.

The single-engine plane left the Laughlin, Nevada, airport for Goodyear Airport on Sunday with four on board. A preliminary report from the National Transportation Safety Board said there hadn’t been a distress call beforehand.

The plane crashed around 6 p.m. near Needles Highway, sparking the fire.

By Monday firefighters had put out the blaze.

Three people aboard the plane were hospitalized.
