SUCHES (AP) — Three people were believed to have been killed when a small aircraft crashed into a house in North Georgia on Saturday afternoon in Union County, authorities said.

The single-engine Piper 32 crashed around 12:50 p.m., said Union County Sheriff’s Dept. Lt. Matt Hromalik.

Hromalik said he believes that three were killed in the crash and two others are in critical condition. He said one passenger was airlifted to the Erlanger Medical Center in Chattanooga, Tenn., while the other was sent to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta.

The identity and ages of the victims were not immediately available.

A spokeswoman for the Federal Aviation Administration, Laura Brown, said the aircraft left from Hilton Head Island, S.C., before the aircraft overshot the runway and crashed at the High Valley Airport in Suches.

The plane was registered to MASI, a technology company in Hilton Head, according to the FAA website.
