On Saturday night, a propeller plane in Nevada, United States crashed following departure from Henderson Executive Airport, near Las Vegas, according to investigators. At the time, there were reportedly four people on board; according to investigators, one was pronounced dead at the crash site, with the other three being taken to a nearby hospital. Another later died. A bystander was also subsequently injured.

Officials said the single-engine propeller plane, a Beechcraft Sierra, was flying to Gillespie Field airport, located near San Diego in El Cajon, California. Following take off, the plane turned back with a mechanical problem, intending to land at Henderson. It crashed in a desert area located about half a mile (likely less than a kilometer) to the south of the airport, and then caught fire. A bystander attempted to aid the passengers, and was later hospitalized for smoke inhalation.

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) began investigations of the crash of the place, which was built in 1977. Keith Holloway, an NTSB spokesman, told Fox News their investigation could last as long as two years but a preliminary report would likely be available in the next few weeks.
