Two people were killed and a third was injured when a small plane crashed in the mountains south of Salt Lake City.

The two apparently died on impact and the third was walking when rescuers arrived in the area east of Provo around noon Tuesday, Utah County sheriff's Sgt. Spencer Cannon said in a press conference.

The plane crashed for unknown reasons in a rugged, wooded area, partially covered by a light layer of snow. Rescuers in a helicopter removed the injured person on a stretcher and took him to a hospital, Cannon said.

"The fact that they are walking is at least a good initial sign," Cannon said. "That person was still moving and talking."

It was not immediately known where the plane had taken off and where it was headed. The type of plane and the identities of the victims were not revealed.

The crash was not yet listed on the Federal Aviation Administration's website for recent aviation incidents in the United States.

Provo is a city of approximately 100,000 people 70 kilometers (45 miles) south of Salt Lake City.
