1 Killed, 2 Injured in CO Plane Crash

DENVER (AP) -- Colorado authorities say a fiery plane crash at the Aspen airport Sunday afternoon killed one person and injured two others, one severely.

Officials say the flight originated in Mexico and all three aboard were pilots and Mexican men.

Alex Burchetta, director of operations for the Pitkin County Sheriff's Office, identified the man who died as 54-year-old Sergio Carranza Brabata of Mexico. He did not release the names of the two injured.

Burchetta says the plane went off the right side of the runway, flipped over and burst into flames.

A spokesman for the National Transportation Safety Board says the plane was a Canadair CL-600, a midsized private jet. Federal Aviation Administration records indicate it's registered to the Bank of Utah in Salt Lake City.

An FAA spokesman says the plane was headed from Tucson, Ariz., and crashed upon landing.

A plane with the same tail number took off at 6 a.m. MST from the airport in Toluca, a city 35 miles west of Mexico City, before stopping in Tucson, according to a Mexican federal official who spoke on condition of anonymity
