ASPEN, Colo. (AP) One of the survivors of a private jet crash at the Aspen airport has been released from the hospital but the other remains in serious condition.

The Aspen Daily News reported Tuesday that Moises Carranza was interviewed with federal aviation investigators before he left St. Mary's Hospital in Grand Junction.

The hospital said the other survivor, Miquel Henriqez, has been upgraded to serious condition, from critical.

They were injured when the Canadair CL-600 crashed while attempting to land. Sergio Carranza Brabata was killed.

Investigators say all three were pilots from Mexico and were flying to Aspen from Toluca, Mexico, to pick up family and friends. They were the only ones aboard.

Investigators haven't said who was in control of the plane at the time of the crash.
