Arizona Treasurer Dean Martin at High School as Plane Crashes into Building

Categories: News
Treasurer Dean Martin had a scare this afternoon after a plane crashed into a high school where he was meeting with forest officials.
You may have heard about the airplane that crashed into a central Arizona high school this afternoon, and it turns out that Arizona Treasurer and gubernatorial candidate Dean Martin was at the school at the time of the crash.

Martin's campaign manager, Renee Roebuck, tells New Times the treasurer was at the Round Valley High School in Eager for a meeting before taking a forest tour with officials from the  Citizen's for Multiple Land Use and Access group.

Check out photos of the crash after the jump.

"The plane hit literally about a minute after they left," Roebuck says.

Martin is fine, Roebuck says, but the school is pretty banged upm and there is currently no word on whether there were students in the school at the time of the crash or if there were any injuries.

It's reported by the Associated Press that the small Cessna crashed into the school early this afternoon and that officials were evacuating homes in neighborhoods near the school.

While details of the crash are limited, it looks pretty bad. Martin's campaign sent us a picture the treasurer took of the building following the crash. Check it out below.
