AKRON, OH (WOIO) –
The Ohio Highway Patrol says there are no survivors of the plane crash in Akron Tuesday afternoon.
Officials from ExecuFlight, the company that leased the aircraft, tell us there were nine people aboard the plane, a pilot, copilot and seven passengers.
The FAA says a Hawker H25 twin-engine business jet left Dayton and was on approach to Akron Fulton International Airport just before 3 p.m.
The OSHP says the plane clipped a telephone wire, hit an apartment building on Mogadore Road at Skelton Road, then crashed into an embankment behind that building.
The victims’ names have not been released.
OSHP Staff Lt. Bill Haymaker says authorities have been in touch with the owner of the building, who confirmed that no one was home at the time of the crash. He also says no one else on the ground was injured.
