5 killed in Erie plane crash

ERIE, Colo. - The National Transportation Safety Board says all five people aboard a small plane that crashed near Denver Sunday have died.
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.
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.
