failure. Craig our prayers are with you and your other kids.
A small plane crashed near Rancho Murieta Airport on Wednesday
morning, injuring all three people aboard, officials said.
The victims - a 43-year-old woman, her 5-year-old daughter and a 17-
year-old girl - were taken to UC Davis Medical Center with moderate
injuries, said R.L. Davis, sheriff's spokesman.
The plane apparently lost power as it approached the airport from
the east just before 9 a.m., crashing to the ground about 200 yards
short of the runway, said Jim Hartley, Sacramento Metropolitan Fire
District assistant chief.
The crash did not start a fire, Hartley said.
"Just a hard landing," he said

Federal aviation officials still are investigating the cause of the
crash, Davis said. He said that it is unclear who was flying the
plane at the time of the accident.
