MACK, Colo. (AP) -- Two people are feared dead in a plane crash near Baxter Pass that was discovered by a motorist along the Colorado, Utah border.

Garfield County sheriff's spokeswoman Tanny McGinnis said crews were heading to the site after receiving a report Sunday afternoon.

FAA spokesman Ian Gregor said the plane is a single-engine, four-seat plane Grunman Cheetah. Gregor said a motorist saw the wreckage from a nearby road about 20 miles northwest of Mack, checked on it and saw two bodies.

The plane was en route to Dove Creek, in southwestern Colorado. Additional information was not immediately available.
