1:50 p.m.

A police official says the crash of a single-engine airplane into a recreational vehicle park near the end of a Reno-Tahoe International Airport runway could have been a catastrophe.

Authorities said Wednesday that two people on the plane died in the Tuesday evening crash.

But Sparks police Lt. Pete Krall said that even though the plane crashed among parked RVs, including some with people in them, no one on the ground was killed or hurt.

Krall says fire damaged several trailers and vehicles on the ground.

A manager who witnessed the crash at the 164-space Rivers Edge RV Park referred calls about the crash to corporate owner Storz Management Co. in California.

Company president Andy Carey declined to comment.

The plane was a 1981 Beechcraft Bonanza registered to Venture Aviation Services in Reno. Efforts to reach company officials weren’t immediately successful.

A team from the National Transportation Safety Board was investigating.
