Two of the passengers died and three more people sustained serious injuries, according to the FAA. The pilot and one more passenger had minor injuries, according to the administration.
The National Transportation Safety Board was investigating the cause of the crash.
The Arizona Republic reached out to American Aviation Inc., the plane’s registered owner according to the FAA registry, on Monday.
