A small airplane crashed Friday near the Grand Canyon and is blocking a portion of Highway 64 in Tusayan, the National Park Service tweeted.
Grand Canyon NPS tweeted a road closure alert shortly before 11:30 a.m. for northbound and southbound lanes on Highway 64, just south of the south entrance station.
FAA officials said a single-engine Cessna Caravan made an emergency landing around 10:40 a.m. on a road two miles north of Grand Canyon Airport.
Small plane crash near Grand Canyon causes road closure
Looks like a skydiving plane from the GC airport, I'm guessing engine failure and couldn't make it back to the field. Only the pilot was still on board, injuries but alright.
