A small plane crashed on a street in a southeast Las Vegas neighborhood Monday morning leaving one dead and 3 injured.
Authorities say a small airplane has crashed on a street in a residential neighborhood south of Las Vegas.
Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Sgt. John Sheahan says two males and two females were aboard the single-engine Piper Cherokee when it crashed on Clover Field Court early Monday. No one on the ground was injured.
Sheahan says the injured were taken to a hospital with life-threatening burns and trauma.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says the plane took off from the Henderson airport shortly after 8 this morning and was unable to gain altitude. The pilot tried to return to Henderson but crashed.
Henderson is located just south of Las Vegas.
The National Transportation Safety Board plans to remove the plane from the neighborhood around 2 p.m. Streets in the area are closed to traffic.
