ERIE, Colo. (AP) - Authorities say three people were killed and two others were injured when their small plane crashed near an airport north of Denver.

National Transportation Safety Board spokesman Peter Knudson says the Piper PA-46 airplane crashed near the Erie Municipal Airport at about 11:50 a.m. Sunday. He did not know how badly the survivors were injured.

Erie Police Cmdr. Lee Mathis says the six-passenger plane crashed a few hundred yards northwest of the runway, but he did not know if it was landing or taking off. A photo of the crash site posted on the Boulder Daily Camera's website showed the mangled wreckage of the plane, which crashed into a grassy field.

Erie is about 20 miles north of Denver.
