No Injuries Reported In Sunriver Plane Crash

SUNRIVER, OR -- Sunriver Police and Fire were called to a plane crash at the Sunriver Airport Wednesday, just after 5 p.m. 

The pilot and co-pilot were the only people involved in the crash. Both were uninjured and declined medical treatment. According to statements from a witness and the pilots, the airplane lost control due to a gust of wind during takeoff and came to rest approximately 20 feet off the runway.  A small fuel leak was mitigated by Sunriver Fire and Rescue. The Sunriver Airport runway was reopened after the involved airplane was removed from the runway. 

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) were notified and will investigate.

No arrests were made as a result of the crash.
