2 Killed in Charleston, WV, Cargo Plane Accident

Charleston, WV -- May 5, 2017, two people were fatally injured after an accident where their cargo plane crashed off the runway.

Officials from the Yeager Airport released preliminary details surrounding the accident, which they say occurred just before 7:00 a.m.

Reports say that two pilots were flying an Air Cargo Carriers plane for contracting work through UPS. They departed from Louisville, KY, about an hour before the crash. Upon arrival at Yeager Airport, the plane somehow lost control and went down into a wooded area before reaching the runway.

By the time rescue crews arrived on the accident scene, both pilots had succumbed to fatal injuries.

Authorities say that the accident is still under investigation, and no potential causes have been suggested at this time.
