A small aircraft makes a crash landing in a Surprise neighborhood.  Sergeant Norman Owens says the pilot took a nose dive into a grassy strip of land through a few trees and crashed into pieces.  The pilot and his passenger suffered severe injuries and were transported to a local hospital in critical condition.  Witnesses

say they heard the plane sputtering and loud noises before it smashed its way through some trees.  No one on the ground was hurt and the pilot managed to avoid homes.  Surprise police and the NTSB are investigating the cause of the crash.
