EL PASO, Texas -

A plane crashed about two miles south of the Las Cruces airport Friday evening, according to New Mexico State Police

The ABC-7 Investigative team learned the plane belongs to a man by the name of Sean Tommervik from East Bridgewater, Massachussetts. 

Dona Ana County Sheriff Kelly Jameson said airport personnel called central dispatch at 5:08 p.m. after receiving radio dispatch from the pilot that they were having engine failure.

New Mexico State Police found the plane. The pilot was uninjured.

"Captain Rich Libicer said it's still unclear if the plane crashed or had an emergency landing," according to the Associated Press.

A person who lives near the scene of the accident said the beach craft plane hit a sand dune but did not catch on fire.
