(KUTV) -- Two people survived a plane crash with no life-threatening injuries Thursday, according to the Spanish Fork Police Department.

Around 8:30 a.m., a 28-year-old instructor was flying with a 35-year-old student pilot as a passenger.

For an unknown reason, the Piper Cherokee PA 28 plane veered to the right. The instructor tried to correct the plane's course, but the attempt was unsuccessful.

According to police, the plane crashed in a ditch off the side of the runway at the Spanish Fork Airport.

The pilot and student pilot were able to get out of the plane and only sustained non-life threatening injuries, according to police.

They were transported to a local hospital.
