LAKEVIEW, Ark. (AP) - A small plane carrying three people crashed at Gaston's White River Resort. No one was hurt but the aircraft was badly damaged.

The Baxter County Sheriff's Office was summoned at 2:30 p.m. Sunday after the four-seat Cirrus CSR 22 aircraft went into some trees when attempting to take off.

The sheriff's office said Monday the pilot encountered difficulties while trying to become airborne and both of the plane's wings struck trees along the resort's airstrip.

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating.

The sheriff's office identified the pilot as 30-year-old Jordan Smith of Kansas City, Mo.
