Four people are dead after a small plane crashed shortly after taking off Sunday night in Utah.

Deputies with the Grand County Sheriff’s Office said they received report that the aircraft went down around 8.30pm on Sunday.

An Air Medical helicopter located the downed plane while crews from the sheriff’s office, the Moab Fire Department and EMTs responded to the crash site.

In a brief statement released just after midnight Monday, the Sheriff’s Office said: ‘Rescue efforts were completed. Four occupants unfortunately did not survive the crash. Further information will be provided as soon as family members have been notified.’

Initially, the office said it dispatched emergency responders after receiving a call for a witness who saw ‘a plane going into the ground shortly after taking off from the Canyonlands Airfield north of Moab.’

The identities of the four passengers were not released at the time, pending notification of family members.
