An ongoing investigation into a fatal early-morning plane crash in Pueblo, Colo., led Mitt Romney's campaign to cancel plans for a Sunday afternoon rally in the southern Colorado city.

 

Pueblo police said the crash of an "experimental plane" around 9 a.m. at the Pueblo Memorial Airport killed one person who was on the plane. forcing the closure of two runways, according to the Pueblo Chieftain newspaper. The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the incident.

"We do not want to interfere with the investigation of any emergency response efforts," Romney spokesman Rick Gorka said in an email.

Romney had been scheduled to hold the event at the Pueblo Weisbrod Aircraft Museum, which is located near the airport. His charter plane will now fly to Los Angeles.
