PAGE, AZ (CBS5) -

A small plane crashed into a family's backyard in Page on Saturday night, just feet from where people were sitting.

Page police said the aircraft was trying to land when the left wing clipped the awning of someone's patio.

Three people were on board the plane. All of them walked away uninjured, officers said.

The company that owns the aircraft, American Aviation, was involved in another plane crash just weeks ago. It also happened in Page.

In that incident, the plane was on a sightseeing tour when the engine lost power and went down, killing one person.

Another passenger had to be taken to the hospital.
