Sheriff: No survivors in small plane crash on east side of Rollins Pass Road

CENTRAL CITY, Colo. (AP) – Authorities say no one survived the crash of a small plane in the northern Colorado mountains.

A spokeswoman for the Gilpin County Sheriff’s office, Cherokee Blake, said Thursday that the single-engine, two-seat plane was burned so severely that investigators haven’t been able to determine the identities of the passengers. They’re also not sure how many were on board.

The sheriff’s office received a call at about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday about smoke on Rollins Pass Road. U.S. Forest Service employees found the plane in the Arapaho National Forest.

It’s unclear where the plan was going or where it originated. Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Mike Fergus says investigators are also working to gather information about the crash.
