Jet Crash in Georgia Kills Five

Federal and local authorities were investigating Thursday after a small jet crashed off the end of a runway at a Georgia airport, killing five people and injuring two.

The plane overran a runway during its landing and crashed into woods at the airport west of Augusta, the National Transportation Safety Board said in a statement Thursday morning.

Two survivors were taken to area hospitals in eastern Georgia after the Hawker Beechcraft 390/Premier I crashed shortly after 8 p.m. Wednesday, Thomson-McDuffie County Sheriff Logan Marshall said.
