WEST JORDAN, Utah — Three people were killed Saturday when the plane they were in crashed in West Jordan.

Those who died were a man piloting the plane, a woman and a 9-month-old girl. Three others were on the plane as well: one woman who is in critical condition, a two-year-old boy in stable condition, and a 12-year-old who was injured but released.

A woman who was inside her home when the plane crashed into it is in critical condition.

The deceased victims' names were not released as next-of-kin notification process is still underway. Police expect to release them tomorrow.

The Piper PA-32 crashed in the area of 8800 South and 4000 West around 1:30 p.m., causing a massive fire, destroying one home and damaging two others.

The plane had taken off from South Valley Regional Airport.
