ROY — As federal officials investigate a weekend plane crash, the two occupants of the aircraft are continuing their recoveries.

The Piper single-engine aircraft crashed about 3:30 p.m. Sunday, hitting a billboard next to I-15 in Roy about a half-mile southwest of Ogden-Hinckley Airport shortly after taking off.

Two people on board were critically injured. A third person who tried to help the victims was also taken to local hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation.

Several people on social media have identified one of the victims as Bryce Ransom. He suffered multiple broken bones, including both ankles, his sternum, ribs, nose, hand and knee, according to a GoFundMe fundraiser* set up for him.

Ransom has two children and his wife is due to give birth to their third child any day, according to friends on Facebook.

In that incident, a flight instructor and a student were in the plane when it experienced a mechanical issue, according to the Utah Highway Patrol. The instructor made the decision to land on the freeway, and hit a car while landing. No one was injured.

The Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Security Administration will investigate Sunday’s crash.

OGDEN — A small plane made an emergency landing on the freeway Saturday in Weber County.

Officials said the Piper PA-28R-180 Arrow departed Ogden-Hinckley Regional Airport just before 8 a.m. and was forced to make an emergency landing on Interstate 15 at 5600 South. Local authorities said there were two people onboard the single-engine plane.

According to the Utah Highway Patrol, a 19-year old flight instructor was with a student when the aircraft experienced a mechanical issue. It was then the instructor made a bold decision to land the distressed aircraft in the southbound lanes of the freeway, explained Utah Highway Patrol Cpl. Andy Battenfield.

"The female instructor took control of the plane and flew under the Riverdale Road bridge structure," he said. "While landing, she struck 2004 Toyota Camry with four occupants."

He noted the aircraft’s wing struck and shattered the rear window of the vehicle, but no injuries were reported. Damage to the plane and the car were minimal, he said.

The roadway was blocked for about 90 minutes. Officials are investigating what prompted the aircraft to have to make the impromptu landing.

RIVERDALE – No injuries were reported after a small airplane made an emergency landing on I-15 southbound in Riverdale Saturday morning.

According to Utah Highway Patrol, a 19-year-old female flight instructor was forced to bring the plane down just before 8 a.m. on the freeway near milepost 339 shortly after take off.

In audio obtained by Fox 13, the pilot can be heard speaking to the control tower at Ogden-Hinckley Airport.

“…the freeway, going down,” the pilot said. “Now we’re on the freeway… we’re going to need some help getting off the freeway.”

The plane took off from the Ogden-Hinckley Airport but the pilot says she was forced to bring it down when it suffered  “a loss of power.”

“After takeoff we were not climbing and we started to descend and so we did emergency gear down and hit the runway… uh, not the runway I hit the road,” the pilot said in the recording.

UHP says the plane did collide with one vehicle but no injuries have been reported.

“None in the airplane, we don’t know if we hit a car,” the pilot told control in the recording. “We don’t believe so, we just think we hit hard. But we’re going to need some help.”

According to UDOT right lanes were closed following the incident but have since been reopened.

UHP reports the plane was taken back to the Ogden-Hinckley Airport in good condition.
