Eight Dead in Plane Crash Near Kirksville

By AP / KWMU

Kirksville, MO – The twin-engine, Jet Stream 32 carried 15 people, including two crew members. It went down in a wooded area about 7:50 last night.

Weather observers reported a misty overcast, with some thunderstorms in the area. But it's unclear if the plane went down in a storm.

The FAA says the last communication indicated a normal approach.

Authorities say a man and a woman are in stable condition at Northeast Regional Medical Center in Kirksville.

The other five people are missing.
