SEDONA, Ariz. -

SEDONA, Ariz. (AP) -- Two people were seriously injured after a small plane went off a ledge at the end of a runway at the Sedona Airport in northern Arizona.

Sedona Fire District spokesman Gary Johnson says the plane dropped about 200 feet into a tree-covered slope off the runway's south end about 2 p.m. Tuesday.

Johnson says the pilot and two passengers were extricated and survived the crash. Their names weren't immediately released.

One person was airlifted to a Flagstaff hospital and another was taken by ground ambulance. Both were reported to be in serious condition. A third person was treated at the crash scene.

Federal Aviation Administration officials say the single-engine Mooney M20J was arriving from Henderson, Nev.

The FAA and National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the cause of the crash.
