RENO, Nev., Sept. 12 (UPI) -- All three people on board a small plane were killed in a crash at Reno-Tahoe International Airport Sunday evening, officials said.

The crash took place just seconds after the piper Cherokee took off. An unknown problem occurred on the plane and it slammed onto cars in the airport parking lot, airport spokesman Brian Kulpin told CNN.
