At least 2 dead in 2 small plane crashes north of Denver; Passers-by pulled pilot from 1 plane By The Associated Press

LONGMONT, Colo. (AP) ' Authorities say at least two people have been killed after two small planes crashed north of Denver in a possible midair collision.

Longmont police Cmdr. Tim Lewis said Friday's crashes occurred within five minutes of each other ' and about six miles apart ' but he didn't know if the planes had collided. FAA spokesman Mike Fergus says the crashes were being investigated as a possible midair collision.

One plane went down near a small airport in the city and the other crashed about a half-mile from a Wal-Mart southeast of Longmont.

The Weld County coroner's office says two people died in the plane that crashed near Wal-Mart. There names were being withheld until family could be notified.

One witness says that wreckage looked like a crushed can.
