As Many as Nine Feared Dead—
AKRON, Ohio- A plane crashed into an Akron apartment building Tuesday afternoon, killing everyone on board.
The plane was a Hawker H25 small jet on approach to Akron Fulton International Airport when it crashed into a building at about 3 p.m., an FAA spokesman said. According to Akron Police Lt. Rick Edwards, it happened in the area of Mogadore and Skelton roads.
The plane hit power lines then crashed into a home, the Ohio State Highway Patrol said. It struck an embankment and hit another home.
Troopers said there were no survivors, but would not specify how many people were on board. Sources told the FOX 8 I-Team the plane was carrying nine people, including the pilot and co-pilot.
No one on the ground or in the apartment building was injured, fire officials said.
Some FirstEnergy customers lost power as a result of the plane crash, spokesman Mark Durbin said. At one point about 1,500 were without electricity near the Akron Fulton Airport.
FAA investigators are on their way. The National Transportation Safety Board will be in charge of the investigation.
The Hawker jet was traveling from Dayton.
Employees at a nearby construction company said they heard a low-flying plane, then what sounded like a car hitting a telephone pole. When they went outside, they saw flames and black smoke.
Witnesses told FOX 8 News the plane clipped an apartment building before going down. Within moments, fire trucks and ambulances were at the scene. Workers at the construction company ran down the street to try to help.
