Two people were killed Friday when a cargo plane owned by a Milwaukee company crashed in Charleston, West Virginia, according to Kanawha County Manager Jennifer Herrald.

The pair were the only people on board the jet that crashed at Yeager Airport in Charleston, West Virginia, said Bill Carpenter, spokesman for Kanawha County Emergency Medical Services.

Plante stated the cargo plane had begun its journey in Louisville, Kentucky, takin off at 5:43 with a landing scheduled for Charleston airport at 6:51 am.

The plane was operated by Air Cargo Carrier, contracted by UPS.

The pilot and co-pilot died in the crash, according to Plante.

He said it's been "difficult to get to" because of "steep terrain".

Yeager Airport Police Chief Joe Crawford said in the release, "Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of Mr. Alvarado and Ms. Ho".

Airport officials say it appears one wing hit the runway and skidded off the left of the runway.

Plante said that workers were working from the top and the bottom of the hill to reach the crash using chainsaw to hack their way through the brush.

New outlets report emergencies crews are at the scene. Officials says UPS plane went off runway, several on board, and heavy entrapment.

Plante told WSAZ that officials didn't immediately find evidence of any issues that might have caused the crash.

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — The crew of a propeller plane carrying UPS cargo made no distress call before the small aircraft landed hard enough to gouge the runway and break into pieces on Friday, a federal investigator said.
