One person is dead and two others sustained injury after a plane crash on Sunday in Colorado.
 
The incident happened in the Aspen area.

Three people were aboard the aircraft at the time.

A dispatcher with a local sheriff's office says one of the passengers was severely injured, while another suffered non-life threatening injuries.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the mid-sized jet was arriving from Tucson when the crash happened.

Apparently the plane circled the airport multiple times, before it came down and attempted to land.

Officials say there was light snow and strong winds when the incident happened.
