Small jet crash kills 5 in eastern Georgia
Thursday - 2/21/2013, 11:10am EST
THOMSON, Ga. (AP) -- The National Transportation Safety Board says in a statement that a small jet "overran" a runway during its landing and crashed into a wooded area in eastern Georgia.
Authorities say five people died in the crash shortly after 8 p.m. Wednesday and two others were taken to a hospital in nearby Augusta.
The NTSB also says it's launched a "go-team" of investigators who were en route Thursday morning from Washington, D.C. to the crash site at the Thomson McDuffie-Regional Airport west of Augusta.
The Hawker Beechcraft 390/Premier I had departed from Nashville, Tenn., before it crashed at the airport about in Georgia.
Thomson-McDuffie County Sheriff Logan Marshall said the identities of those killed were being withheld pending notification of family members.
