The FAA is investigating why a small Cessna crashed south of Reno in King's Canyon near Carson City.

Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong says the call came in about 2:45pm Wednesday in upper Kings Canyon, about three miles northeast of Spooner Summit.

Three people were aboard the plane when it crashed, and are not hurt.

Sheriff Furlong says the plane had departed the Carson City Airport earlier with a pilot and two passengers on a regional area tour.

The details of the flight and cause of the accident are being investigated by the FAA.

The NTSB is en route to the crash to begin their investigation.

The names of the persons on board are not being released at this time.
