At least 10 people were killed when a private jet plane crashed into traffic on an expressway in Malaysia on Thursday.
On Thursday, a private jet plane took off from Langkawi International Airport on the island of Langkawi in the state of Kedah in Malaysia. The plane was traveling to Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport in Subang, Petaling District, Selangor, Malaysia, the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia said in a statement.
"First contact made by the aircraft with Subang Air Traffic Control Tower was at 2.47 p.m. [local time (2.47 a.m. ET)] and landing clearance was given at 2:48 p.m.," according to the statement. At 2:51 p.m., the "control tower observed smoke originating from the crash site but no mayday call was made by the aircraft."
The private plane crashed onto an expressway north of Malaysia's capital of Kuala Lumpur.
The Beechcraft model 390 twin-engine plane was carrying six passengers and two flight crew when it crashed.
The flight was operated by private jet services company Jet Valet, Reuters reported.
Selangor Police Head Hussein Omar Khan said the plane collided with a car and a motorcycle, each carrying one person.
"Forensic personnel are in the process of collecting the remains and will bring them to the Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital in Klang for a post-mortem examination and identification process,” Khan said, according to CNN.
Transport Minister Anthony Loke said, "No one survived the crash. Victims (on the road) will also still need to be identified, will update in due time. Forensic confirmation needs to be taken."
There are multiple videos of the plane crash.
Video recorded on the dashcam of a car that passed on the other side of the expressway shows the moment that the plane crashed followed by huge flames bursting across the highway.
A surveillance camera shows the plane plummeting onto the highway and causing a large fireball. The sound wave caused the camera to shake despite being at a far distance from the crash.
The Ministry of Transport is investigating the crash.
