The Cessna 310 was from New Mexico, and carried only the pilot and passenger.

The female passenger was able to walk down the mountain, while the male pilot was brought down in a stretcher.

Officials say his injuries did not appear to be life threatening.

The cause of the crash was NOT immediately known, but fog enveloped the mountain and rain and snow has fallen in the Salt Lake City area intermittently all day.
