A glider crashes onto a golf course in Durango and the pilot is killed.
The two-seat glider crashed Friday afternoon between the first hole and the driving range on the Glacier Club golf course.
La Plata County Sherrif's Office says no one on the ground was injured.

Witnesses reported the glider had been at low altitude, banked hard right and narrowly missed a home before landing.
No word yet on the name of the victim.
The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the accident.
