GENOLA, Utah County — A small plane with at least two occupants inside crashed near northwest Genola in Utah County, police say.

According to Santaquin Police Cpl. Rich Glenn, the pilot has told police that everyone was OK and there were no injuries.

The small plane was equipped with a parachute, allowing the pilot to deploy it when the plane began to have troubles, Glenn said. Police are unsure how many were aboard the plane, with mixed messages on whether the plane had two or three occupants.

According to preliminary information given by the pilot, the crash might have been due to fueling issues or a motor issue.

"That's all to be investigated; we still don't know at this point," Glenn said.

Police were using a utility vehicle Thursday evening to try and reach the crash site, which is in the middle of a swampy area.
