Transportation Safety Board responds to small plane crash in Kananaskis Country

Officials are investigating a late night plane crash in Kananaskis Country involving several people.

The Transportation Safety Board of Canada said in a release Saturday that it deployed a team of investigators to Kananaskis Village for what they’re calling an accident involving a Piper PA32.

Liam MacDonald, a TSB spokesperson, said that the small plane departed from Springbank Airport near Calgary on Friday night, was reported overdue and later located roughly five kilometres north of Kananaskis Village. 

Several people were on the plane, MacDonald said. It’s unclear if anyone was killed or hurt. 

Kananaskis Village is located roughly 100 kilometres west of Calgary.

CBC News has reached out to EMS for more information.
