FAIRBANKS, Alaska — Authorities say two of the four people aboard were injured when a small plane crashed Friday in a remote area of Alaska's northeast Brooks Range mountains.

A spokesman says the Alaska Air National Guard sent a Pave Hawk helicopter to transport the two to a Fairbanks hospital.

A National Transportation Safety Board aviation accident investigator, Andrew Swick, says the two suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner says a Fairbanks Memorial Hospital spokeswoman says there's no record that the two were admitted, so it's likely medics checked and then cleared them.

The two others stayed behind to await a charter.

The group reportedly had been moose hunting.
