NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) - Authorities say a plane carrying
four people crashed after apparently striking power lines Saturday
afternoon about 20 miles northwest of North Las Vegas.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says there was no immediate confirmation of injuries or fatalities, but crews at the scene indicated they didn't see how anyone could have survived the crash.
Gregor says a preliminary investigation shows the Piper Cherokee was en route from the North Las Vegas airport to Byron, Calif., when it crashed at about 2:45 p.m. at the 7,000-foot level on Mt. Charleston.
The plane burst into flames after crashing and was destroyed.
