Utah brothers' plane crashed in windy canyon

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Federal investigators say a small plane that crashed in northwestern Arizona last month while carrying two teenagers from Clinton, Utah, was flying in a very windy canyon.

A preliminary National Transportation Safety Board report says motorists on Interstate 15 saw the single-engine Cessna flying low overhead in the canyon on July 20. The plane hit a canyon wall about 100 feet above the road.

Both brothers died in the crash.

NTSB investigator Larry Lewis told The Associated Press last month that the plane should have been flying at a minimum of 500 feet.
