SALT LAKE CITY -- Authorities say two people are dead in the crash of a small plane near a school in the Utah community of Payson.
Utah County sheriff Sgt. Lance Smith tells The Associated Press the single-engine aircraft crashed about 1 p.m. Wednesday across the street from Wilson Elementary School.
Smith says both people aboard the aircraft are dead. No one on the ground was hurt.
He says classes were in session, but he doesn't know if schoolchildren saw the crash.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Allen Kenitzer says the plane was a Diamond Da-20 with two people aboard.
FAA records show the plane is registered to Utah Valley University in Orem.
