Plane Crashes into RV Park

SPARKS, Nev. (AP) — Officials say a small plane crashed into an RV park as it approached Reno-Tahoe International Airport. The condition of the pilot or anyone else who may have been aboard is unclear, but there were no injuries on the ground.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says the single-engine plane crashed for unknown reasons into the Rivers Edge RV Park in Sparks about a half-mile from the airport about 6:15 p.m. Tuesday

Sparks police say the plane hit the ground nose first and caught fire. Some of the wreckage hit trailers and vehicles.

Sparks fire officials say everyone in the RV park has been accounted for and no one was hurt. The park has been evacuated because of smoke.

The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate.
