Three reported dead in mid-air collision in Boulder County – CBS News

Two planes collided mid-air Saturday in Boulder County, Colorado, killing at least three people.

An aircraft and a single-engine Cessna 172 collided near Vance Brand Airport in Longmon just before 9 a.m., the Federal Aviation Administration reported. Boulder is about 30 minutes away from Longmont.

According to the FAA, two people were aboard the Cessna 172. At this time, the FAA has not confirmed how many passengers were onboard the second aircraft, described as a Sonex Xenos by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB).

A spokesperson for the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that both passengers in the Cessna 172 died on the scene. The sheriff’s office confirmed that one occupant of the other aircraft was also deceased upon the arrival of first responders.

It was discovered by first responders that there were two separate crash sites, according to the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office.

During the search, the first aircraft was located on the south side of Niwot Road and the second aircraft was located on the north side.

It has not yet been determined who the three victims of the crash were, according to police.

The crash is being investigated by the FAA and NTSB.
