UPDATE: 3:22pm

At approximately 10:30 on Tuesday morning, a small plane carrying two people crashed into a steep ravine in Fort Smith on the Crow Reservation, just north of Sheridan.

Undersheriff Mike Fuss with the Big Horn County Sheriff's Department says the crash is still under investigation, but that all those in the plane - a total of two - survived the crash.

The plane, an Aviat A-1B Husky plane crashed for unknown reasons, and the extent of possible injuries are unknown at this point.

The single-engine, fixed-wing airplane is registered to a ranch outside of Gillette. An investigation into the crash will be headed by the National Transportation Safety Board, aided by local authorities and the Federal Aviation Administration.

Undersheriff Fuss says he's not ready at this point to release the names of those involved in the crash, but again, he says it looks like they're going to make it.
