BROOMFIELD, Colo. — Officials say no injuries were reported following a plane crash into a pond in Broomfield Wednesday morning.
The two occupants of the small plane walked away unscathed after the aircraft went down into a retention pond at the Anthem Ranch subdivision near the tennis/pickleball courts, according to North Metro Fire.
The call came in around 11:45 a.m. The National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the cause of the crash.
The subdivision where Wednesday’s crash occurred is only about a mile south of runway 33 at Erie’s airport. In May of this year, two people were killed the Piper PA32-360 went down in the same neighborhood.
The neighborhood association has a committee that discusses the aviation-related concerns of residents. The committee said in May that concerns from residents about some operations at the nearby airport are increasing.
The pilot from Wednesday’s incident said more than 50 gallons of fuel was on board the plane at the time of the crash. City water crews also responded to assist with the fuel mitigation and clean-up efforts.
