A private plane crashed near Hawthorne Municipal Airport on Tuesday.
According to firefighters on the scene, all occupants of the plane were able to safely evacuate after the plane crashed at around 6:40 p.m.
The plane, an Embraer EMB-505 Phenom 300, is reported to have skidded off the runway, near Prairie Avenue.
Data from FlightRadar24 revealed that the plane originally took off from Jackson Hole, Wyoming, before landed at Hawthorne Municipal Airport. It traveled all the way to the end of the runway before sliding off, possibly due to the wet tarmac.
Firefighters dispatched to the scene reported that the “plane tail had crashed through a perimeter fence,” near the runway.
Circumstances leading up to the crash were still not immediately known.
The airport remained closed until officials were able to clear the jet off the runway.
None of the seven passengers onboard were injured.
