Two plane crashes within weeks of one another in the small Utah town of West Jordan has claimed the lives of three people. The Salt Lake Tribune reported Wednesday that the most recent crash occurred the day before, and another preceded it three weeks prior.
The first accident occurred on September 15 when a small aircraft approached the South Valley Regional Airport. For an unknown reason, the plane crashed next to Columbia Elementary School. Luckily, no students were injured, but the pilot of the plane and his dog perished in the crash.
Tuesday’s accident happened as a plane was taking off. The owner and passenger on board the aircraft, a 40-year-old man from Manti, Utah, had just purchased the plane and had aspirations of learning to fly and get his pilots license.

The owner died at the scene, while the pilot died a day later form massive injuries.
Investigations into both accidents are still currently ongoing with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and other agencies.
