An instructor pilot and student walked away unscathed after a small plane crashed in Boulder County Thursday, according to the sheriff's office.
Multiple first responders from the Boulder County Sheriff's Office, Colorado State Patrol, Lafayette Police and Fire Department and several other agencies responded to a plane crash near the intersection of U.S. Highway 287 and Isabelle Road near Erie, just after 7 p.m., officials said.
Officials located the damaged Piper Cherokee 6 in the Cherry Creek Tree Farm Open Space. The plane took off at Rocky Mountain Metro Airport in Broomfield, according to the release.
Hwy. 287 was closed for a period of time while an initial investigation took place.
The Federal Aviation Administration has since taken over the investigation and is attempting to determine the cause of the incident.
