SPRINGVILLE, Utah (AP) - A drag-racing Corvette crashed into a small plane at the Spanish Fork-Springville Airport.

The Daily Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2n9wtah ) that according to Sgt. Cade Harding with Spanish Fork Public Safety, a Corvette and a Porsche were drag racing on the taxiway of the airport on Friday when the Corvette struck a single-engine plane that had stopped on the taxiway for a mechanical issue.

Harding says the crash damaged the plane’s wheel and possibly part of its tail. There was also damage to the passenger side of the Corvette. No one was injured in the crash.

The drivers were invited into the security area of the airport by individuals with a hangar at the facility. Harding says those people did not have authorization to be at the airport.
