HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) - September 6, 2010

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Sgt. John Sheahan says two males and two females were aboard the single-engine Piper Cherokee when it crashed on Clover Field Court early Monday. No one on the ground was injured.

Sheahan says the injured were taken to a hospital with life-threatening burns and trauma.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says the plane took off from the Henderson airport shortly after 8 this morning and was unable to gain altitude. The pilot tried to return to Henderson but crashed.

Henderson is located just south of Las Vegas.
