EL PASO COUNTY, Colorado — Two people were sent to the hospital after a small plane crashed in eastern El Paso County Sunday morning.

Around 10:15 a.m., the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office responded to an “aircraft emergency,” according to the blotter. A Best Off Skyranger B had crashed near J D Johnson Road and Falcon Highway, in between Peyton and Ellicot.

Both of the people traveling in the plane were treated at the hospital for their injuries. One of the people had more serious injuries than the other, but a sheriff’s office spokesperson said both were walking around after the crash.

The circumstances leading up to the crash are unknown at this time, as an investigation continues.
