A small plane crashed in Enumclaw Thursday night, injuring three people on board.

Enumclaw Fire Department says the small plane, a Cessna 172, crashed near the Enumclaw Airport off 244th Avenue SE around 9 p.m.

Three people were taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. As of Saturday, a man and woman were listed in stable condition while a second male remained in serious condition, according to a Harborview nursing supervisor.

Witness Darren Rawie, who snapped a photo of the downed plane, said the crash happened at Rainier Trails near Enumclaw High School.

The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) will lead investigation efforts.
