Small Plane Stops Over In Bartlesville, Crashes In Colorado

Posted: Updated:

Authorities are looking for survivors after a small plane crashed into a reservoir in southwestern Colorado.

Ian Gregor, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration, says the single-engine Socata TBM700 was headed from Bartlesville, Okla., to Montrose when it crashed into a reservoir at Ridgway State Park south of Montrose just before 2 p.m. Saturday.

A sheriff's deputy reported finding debris but no sign of the plane's occupants.

Online flight records show the plane took off from Northeast Alabama Regional Airport in Gadsden, Ala. at 8:30 a.m. It left Bartlesville at 12:12 p.m. en route to Montrose, Colo., records show.

According to the FAA registry, the aircraft is a fixed-wing, single-engine 1996 model and the N number is registered to Gadsden Aviation LLC out of Rainbow City, Ala.

Gregor says he did not yet know the cause of the crash or how many people were aboard the aircraft.

Montrose is about 180 miles southwest of Denver.
