PAGE, Ariz. -- Authorities say a small plane carrying French tourists crashed while attempting to land at an airport in northern Arizona and one person was killed and another hospitalized.

Page Police Capt. Ray Varner says the single-engine plane was carrying seven people when it hit the ground and flipped over in windy conditions Saturday afternoon near the airport runway in Page.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says the Cessna 207 crashed 400 to 500 feet short of the tarmac.

Varner says one passenger died after being rushed to a hospital, while another was hospitalized in apparent stable condition.

Four others received hospital treatment for minor injuries and were released, while the seventh person was unhurt.

Varner says cause of the crash is being investigated.
