YAVAPAI COUNTY—A plane crash northwest of Wickenburg sent one to a Phoenix hospital late Tuesday afternoon.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said the single-engine Cirrus SR22 crashed under unknown circumstances around 11:40 a.m. about 24 miles northwest of Wickenburg.

The plane carried two occupants when it crashed.

One was flown from the scene to a Phoenix area hospital, while the other occupant did not require medical attention, said Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Dwight D’Evelyn.

The crash—which occurred in a very remote area west of Highway 71—had to be reached on foot by deputies, said D’Evelyn.

No additional information is available at this time. The FAA is investigating.
