FAIRBANKS, Alaska — Authorities say two of the four people aboard were injured when a small plane crashed Friday northeast of Fairbanks.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports ( ) that the Alaska 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.

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 four people reportedly were moose hunting.
