Officials say a small plane crashed Saturday in Tennessee, killing two passengers and injuring two others.

Amy Maxwell, a spokesman for Hamilton County Emergency Services, said a single-engine plane crashed around 12:50 p.m. at the Collegedale airport. Collegedale is a city about 20 miles east of Chattanooga.

She said all four victims were on the plane, and the two survivors were airlifted to Erlanger Medical Center.

Tonya Sadler, a spokeswoman for the Collegedale Police, said at least one of the victims was in critical condition and headed into surgery. Sadler said the plane was coming into the Collegedale airport when it crashed. She said she did not know if anyone else outside the plane was injured or if there was property damaged in the crash.
