Six dead, including two children, in Maryland plane crash




Montgomery County

There were six fatalities, including two children, when a private jet slammed into a house in the state of Maryland yesterday.

The jet crashed at around 10:45am local time in Gaithersburg, a surburb of Washington DC, killing a woman and her two young sons inside the property and three more people onboard the aircraft.

Two adjacent properties were also badly damaged by the sheer force of the impact and the resulting fire.

The Embraer EMB-500/Phenom 100 twin-engine jet, a six-seater, was on approach to Montgomery County Airpark when it crashed just short of it.
