SALT LAKE CITY - A small plane crashed Wednesday while trying to land at an airport along the Utah-Nevada border, killing all four people on board, authorities said.
Officials with the Federal Aviation Administration told KTVX TV in Salt Lake City that the plane was registered in Portland.
The accident at the Wendover Airport in northwestern Utah happened at about 2:45 p.m., Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Allen Kenitzer said. A cause hasn't been determined and identities of the four killed hadn't been released pending family notification.
The crash follows another fatal accident involving a Cessna 172 that killed three north of Reno, Nev., on Saturday. The wreckage was found Tuesday with the bodies of two men and a woman inside.
The pilot has been identified as 47-year-old Eric Ling, of Roseburg, Ore.
Roseburg Municipal Airport officials said a flight plan was filed for Saturday from Roseburg to Reno, Nev. Ling's mother, Jeanette Ling, told The Roseburg News-Review that her son was hired to fly a couple to New Mexico.
Federal aviation officials were at the site on Wednesday. Nevada investigators haven't released the names of the victims.
