(KUTV) Officials are looking into what caused a small plane to crash Friday evening at the West Jordan airport

Four people were on board the plane when it crashed right after takeoff. Two were transported to the hospital in serious condition.

"I look behind me and see the big dirt cloud," said witness David Sauer. "This huge plume of dust comes up. I go, oh my God, he's crashed."

Witnesses said the plane never seemed to get to full power and crashed into a field, hitting some power lines on the way down.

There was no word Friday evening on what exactly caused the crash.
