According to the San Miguel County Sheriff, a plane crash in the Telluride area has killed two.
At approximately 1:30 on Thanksgiving Day, a single-engine aircraft was on approach to the Telluride Regional Airport when the airport lost contact with the plane. Witnesses at the scene reported that they saw the plane go down.
An hour later, the crash site was located and two individuals that had been in the plane were determined to be deceased.
One supposed witness stated online that the plane looked and sounded like it was in distress when the crash occurred. That witness claims to have been on the nearby Galloping Goose trail around the time of the accident.
Official details of the crash will be released as the investigation continues, including the identification of victims involved. Condolences go out to the friends and family of those involved in this crash.
This accident comes less than two months after a newlywed couple died during a plane crash that occurred in the Ingram Basin, found east of Telluride.
