RENO, Nev. (KRNV) — Three people are OK after a plane crashed in south Reno Monday morning.
The incident, involving a Cessna 172G, happened in the hills east of Damonte Ranch High School just after 10 a.m. on August 9.
It was initially reported that four people were on board the plane when it went down but that was downgraded to three. Officials said all three were able to walk away from the scene of the crash with scratches and bruises.
The pilot told officials the plane stalled and he set it down for a hard landing and shortly thereafter the plane rolled over. According to FAA records, the plane took off at 10:06 a.m. and crashed just two minutes later.
The National Transportation Safety Board will be on scene shortly to investigate the crash.
