Jet crash kills five in an accident that took place Wednesday night (Feb. 20). The jet crash killed five people on board when the plane "overran" the end of the runway. According to a report on the accident, the crash took place during the landing and a failure to stop at the end of the runway sent the plane into a wooded area.
In addition to the five people who were killed, the report stated that two others had to be taken to an Augusta area hospital. The plan that crashed was a Hawker Beechcraft 390/Premier I that had departed from Nashville, Tenn., before it crashed at the airport in Georgia. Though the names of the people flying on the plane have already been released, those who lost their lives have not yet been identified.
An updated report from ABC News states that five people associated with the Vein Guys clinic in Nashville were on board. They included Dr. Steven Roth, two ultrasound technicians, a nurse anesthetist, and a secretary.
The jet crash that killed five people is still under investigation as the FAA tries to determine why the plane went off the end of the runway. The NTSB has also sent a team to the location, so this will be an ongoing news story as an investigation is sought. The crash itself took place at Thomson-McDuffie County Airport
