Sedona police said plane touched down on Oak Creek Boulevard, bounced over cars and touched down a second time near Mountain Shadows Drive before coming to a stop.

The plane had some damage. The two unidentified people aboard the aircraft appeared unhurt, although they both were taken to a hospital for evaluation, according to authorities.
