A small-engine aircraft crashed on takeoff Sunday at the Fort Smith Regional Airport but no serious injuries were reported.

Pam Kelly, a passenger on the plane, said engine power was lost on takeoff. Kelly said, the pilot crashed the plane trying to miss the fire station and a Delta flight.

Griffin noted the Federal Aviation Administration was onsite Monday investigating and he could not provide any other details at this time.
