CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A single-engine plane crashed at the Casper airport Saturday morning, but authorities say the three on board walked away.

The Natrona County Sheriff’s Office says a Cessna crashed shortly after taking off around 8 a.m. at the Casper/Natrona County International Airport.

There were two passengers and a pilot who were treated and taken to the Wyoming Medical Center for evaluation. The occupants were alert and responsive, but did sustain injuries with unknown severity.

They were not identified.

Witnesses say the plane reached an elevation of about 100 feet when it lost power and fell to the ground west of the airport runway.

The crash will be investigated by the National Transportation Safety Board or the Federal Aviation Administration.
