HURRICANE, Utah (AP) — Police in southern Utah say at least two people are dead after a plane crashed in a remote area near the city of Hurricane.

Hurricane city police Sgt. Brandon Buell did not have details Thursday afternoon about how many people were aboard the aircraft, whether anyone survived or what might have caused the crash.

He says an emergency air transport was called but dispatchers canceled the call. He says that means it's a good possibility there were no survivors.

Buell did not have information on how large the aircraft was or where it was headed.

A photograph of the scene from The Spectrum of St. George shows a small airplane lying upside down in dirt field.

Buell says local investigators are still reviewing the crash site and the National Transportation Safety Board has been notified.
