r By Spanish Fork Police Department

Police, Fire and EMS were dispatched to the Spanish Fork Airport on a report of a Piper Cherokee PA 28 that had crashed just off the runway on takeoff on Thursday, September 13 around 8:30 a.m.

The plane was being flown by an instructor with a student pilot as a passenger. During the process of taking off the plane became airborne and for an unknown reason veered to its right.  The pilot attempted to right the plane but was unsuccessful and the plane crashed off the side of the runway coming to a rest in a ditch.

They were both transported by ambulance to a local hospital.  The names of the pilot and student pilot are not being released at this time. The pilot is a 28-year-old male and the student pilot is a 35-year-old male.
