Three people on board a single-engine Cessna walked away after the plane crashed into a ravine near Rio Vista Municipal Airport on Tuesday, June 30, 2015, officials said.

A plane with three people on board crashed into a ravine near a Solano County airport Tuesday morning, officials said.

Everyone on aboard the single-engine Cessna 182 was able to walk away, but the plane sustained heavy damage, Rio Vista Public Works Department director David Melilli said.

The crash happened around 11 a.m. and the Rio Vista Municipal Airport was closed until further notice.

Solano County sheriff's Sgt. Jackson Harris said a student and flying instructor were on board.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Lynn Lunsford said the plane went down under unknown circumstances and ended up in a canal. One of three people on board suffered a minor injury, Lunsford said.

The investigation into the crash is ongoing.
