Two small airplanes collide near Cherry Creek Reservoir in Denver

Two planes collided in midair over Cheery Creek Reservoir on Wednesday, according to South Metro Fire Rescue. In a tweet, the department said they were responding to the crash near Belleview Avenue and Cherry Creek Drive.

The two planes clipped each other, according to SMFR. One went down near Cheery Creek Reservoir in a field and the other landed at Centennial Airport.

There have been no injuries reported from the incident.

According to FlightAware, the aircraft that went down was likely a Cirrus SR-22. The airplane had taken off from Centennial Airport. The Cirrus SR-22 was likely lowered safely to the ground by a Cirrus Airframe Parachute System (CAPS) device, which is a rocket-propelled parachute system that slows the entire airplane back to land.

This is a developing story.
