KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Crews in Kansas City, Missouri, responded Wednesday morning to a crash involving a small single-engine plane north of the river.

A small plane with two people on board reportedly crashed around 10:50 a.m. near the 10900 of Northeast 104th Street in Clay County.

The location is near the Roosterville Airport, which isn’t far from Liberty North High School.

Initially, the Clay County Sheriff’s Office said one passenger suffered serious injuries, while another had minor injuries, but a spokesperson for the Kansas City Fire Department said two people suffered critical injuries.

The pilot had an Arizona driver’s license and had flown in and out of the Roosterville Airport on multiple occasions in the last month.

The sheriff’s office said the plane crashed shortly after taking off.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
