Two adults and two juveniles suffered life-threatening injuries Friday morning after a small aircraft crashed in a residential community just outside Denver, authorities said.

Arvada police posted on X around 9:45 a.m. that they were responding to reports of a small aircraft crash, later adding that the injured had been taken to a local hospital.

The adults and the juveniles were all on board the Beach Bonanza plane, spokespeople from both Arvada police and Arvada Fire Rescue said.

The small aircraft had taken off from Centennial Airport, according to Cassie Pearce, the Jefferson County public affairs director. She did not know at what time the plane left the airport or where it was going.

Arvada is a city of about 120,000 people. It's about 10 miles northwest of Denver.
