SPANISH FORK, Utah, Sept. 13, 2018 (Gephardt Daily) — An instructor and student pilot suffered non-life-threatening injuries Thursday morning when their small craft, being flown by the licenced pilot, crashed on the side of the Spanish Fork Airport runway.

The incident happened at about 8:30 a.m. Thursday, according to information from the Lt. Brandon Anderson, Spanish Fork Police Department.

“Police, Fire and EMS were dispatched to the Spanish Fork Airport on a report of a Piper Cherokee PA 28 that had crashed just off the runway on takeoff,” a statement from Anderson says.
