Plane collides with motorcycle, car leaving 10 dead in fiery crash

At least 10 people were killed in Malaysia on Thursday after a private jet collided with a motorcycle and car while trying to land at an airport near Kuala Lumpur, reports say.

Video taken from a surveillance camera near the scene showed a plane traveling sharply downward before smashing into the ground, causing a fireball.

The sound wave from the impact was enough to shake the camera.

Local police chief Hussein Omar Khan told reporters that the Beechcraft Model 390 was carrying six passengers and two crew members when it crashed around 2 p.m., according to Reuters.

He reportedly said the plane had lost contact with the air traffic control tower and ended up slamming onto a highway.

“There was no emergency call, the aircraft had been given clearance to land,” Omar was quoted as saying.

The plane struck a motorcycle and car while trying to land, Reuters reported, citing officials.

Malaysia’s Civil Aviation Authority said the plane had departed from the island of Langkawi and was heading to the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport, according to Reuters.

“At 2.51 p.m., the Subang Air Traffic Control Tower observed smoke originating from the crash site but no mayday call was made by the aircraft,” the authority’s chief executive, Norazman Mahmud, reportedly said in a statement.
