La Oficina del Sheriff del Condado de Nevada dijo que todos los que estaban a bordo del Bombardier CL 600 murió cuando se estrelló el lunes en un área densamente boscosa cerca del campo de golf Ponderosa en Truckee, near the Del Norte California border with Nevada. Authorities initially said three people died in the crash.
The identities of the victims weren’t released pending DNA identification. Nobody on the ground was injured.
The aircraft went down several blocks from a runway as the pilot was trying to land at Truckee-Tahoe Airport, the Federal Aviation Administration said.
The plane burst into flames, but the fire was quickly doused.
The National Transportation Safety Board said Wednesday that two of its investigators were on the scene investigating the crash.
It says the flight originated from Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.
