EAGAR, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say a small plane nosedived into a high school in a small eastern Arizona town Friday afternoon and exploded, killing both people aboard.
Authorities say there were no reports of injuries on the ground, with classes out for the summer.
They say the Cessna circled the area two or three times before it suddenly crashed into the main building at Round Valley High School in Eagar at about 2 p.m.
Witnesses say the plane took off from nearby Springerville Airport and experienced some sort of problem before veering into a school building. Authorities had no immediate information on the victims, who the plane was registered to or where it was headed.
The school serves about 500 students in Eagar and nearby Springerville and is about 200 miles east of Phoenix.
