Mar 4, 2013

ANGEL FIRE, N.M. (AP) — An official at the airport in the northern New Mexico community of Angel Fire says a single-engine plane carried a family from Texas when it crashed while taking off.

The Federal Aviation Administration said there were four people aboard the plane that crashed Sunday, including two children, and New Mexico State Police said there were no survivors.

Cause of the crash is under investigation and identities of the victims haven't been released.

However, airport weekend relief manager Carl Shilcutt told the Albuquerque Journal that the plane carried a San Antonio family that included two children.

Angel Fire is located 150 miles northeast of Albuquerque. The plane was owned by a company in Scottsville, Texas.
