Steamboat Springs, Colo. (AP) The Federal Aviation Administration says a single-engine airplane crashed near the small northwestern Colorado town of Hayden today, killing both people on board.

FAA regional spokesman Allen Kenitzer says the Piper pa-46 plane was headed to the Yampa Valley Regional Airport from Hutchinson, Kansas, when it lost radio contact early this afternoon about 10 miles southeast of Hayden. Heavy snow was falling at the time.

Search and rescue crews were dispatched after the aircraft failed to arrive at the airport. Routt County Search and Rescue crews found the wreckage at about 4:40 p.m. just west of Hayden.

The Moffat county sheriff’s office identified the victims as Joseph and Suzette Brumleve of Steamboat Springs. FAA records show the plane was registered to Joseph Brumleve.
Authorities say investigators with the National Transportation Safety Board are scheduled to arrive at the scene sometime tomorrow.
