A small plane coming from the annual Burning Man festival crashed near the Reno-Stead Airport in Nevada on Monday afternoon.

Three people on board the plane, which appeared to be a Mooney M20 Ranger, were taken to the hospital, according to Fox 11 Reno. One person suffered serious injuries, while the other two were minor.

The plane was reportedly coming from the festival in the Black Rock Desert, also in Nevada, and struck a fence near the airport. It was not immediately clear whether the plane was landing or taking off, nor what caused it to hit the fence.
