Plane crashes in Rocky Mountain National Park

A small plane has crashed into a remote part of Rocky Mountain National Park, injuring two people from Wisconsin. Officials say a 54-year-old man and his 18-year-old daughter suffered only minor injuries in the crash Thursday night.

Park spokeswoman Kyle Patterson says both were conscious and moving about when rangers arrived at the wreckage Friday morning. Their names and hometown haven't been released. Patterson says rangers haven't decided how to evacuate the pair.

The plane crashed in Forest Canyon. The cause hasn't been determined.
