Washoe County Sheriff’s Office deputies along with Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District are working a plane crash in the hills several miles east of Damonte Ranch High School. 

The pilot states the plane stalled and he set it down for a hard landing. Shortly thereafter the plane rolled and crashed. 

All three of the occupants walked away from this incident, and they hiked for several hours to reach the intersection of Tellurium Mine Dr. and Mine Shaft Dr.

Reno first responders were the first to take the call, and further investigation determined the crash occurred in County jurisdiction.
