FAA investigating plane crash in Aspen, CO.

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Right now the FAA is investigating what caused the crash in Aspen, Colorado this afternoon.

However, we are learning the small private jet originated from Tucson International Airport this morning. 

The small plane was expected to land in Aspen just afternoon, but that's when something went wrong during landing according to the Federal Aviation Administration. 

Eye witnesses have been posting pictures on twitter of the plane crash at the airport in Aspen. 

According to flightaware.com, the plane landed in Tucson this morning coming from Mexico. 

We called the FAA to see what the plane was doing in Tucson before heading to Colorado, but our calls have not been returned. 

Authorities in Colorado say three people were on board. One has died, another has been severely injured and the third person has non-life threatening injuries. 

FAA officials say the plane appears to be a Bombardier Challenger 600. Files on record with the FAA show the plane is owned by the Bank of Utah. 

Right now, authorities are not releasing the names of those on board. 

We will of course bring you the lastest as it develops.
