TELLURIDE, Colo. (AP) -- The Federal Aviation Administration says a twin-engine plane en route from Grand Junction to southern New Mexico crashed on Mount Wilson west of Telluride today, killing the only person on board.
The pilot's identity was not immediately available.
The plane was a seven-seat Piper Seneca II registered to American Aviation of Salt Lake City. A woman who answered the telephone there declined comment.
Authorities said the plane crashed in the Woods Lake area about 10 miles southwest of Telluride. The plane was en route to Animas, N.M.
Investigators plan to be on scene Saturday to determine what happened.
