A small jet crashed off the end of a runway in eastern Georgia, where five people were killed and two injured, an official confirmed early Thursday.

The jet crashed after 8 p.m. Wednesday, Thomson-McDuffie County Sheriff Logan Marshall said. Two survivors were brought to area hospitals but their conditions are not clear. The identities of those killed were not revealed pending notification next of kin.

The plane said to be a Hawker Beechcraft 390/Premier I was on flight from Nashville, Tenn., with seven people aboard crashed around 8:30 p.m. at the Thomson-McDuffie County Airport, about 30 miles west of Augusta, Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said in an email. She added that she had no clear details about a possible cause and reportedly said the aircraft is registered to a company based on Wilmington, Del.

Assistant County Fire Chief Stephen Sewell was cited by The Augusta Chronicle as saying there were about two survivors identified as a pilot and a passenger. But no additional information about those aboard in that account, he said.
