According to the Transportation Safety Board four people have died in the crash of a small plane in southern British Columbia. Investigators from the board were on their way to the scene of the crash near Kelowna.
Board spokesman Bill Yearwood said a Cessna Citation aircraft with four people on board went down at about 10:30 p.m. Thursday after taking off from Kelowna en route to Springbank, outside Calgary.
The site of the crash was northeast of Winfield, about 18 kilometres north of Kelowna.
RCMP Cpl. Dan Moskaluk confirmed police were alerted when the private business-style jet lost radar contact.
“Investigators located the crash site approximately four kilometres into a heavily wooded area east of Lake Country,” Moskaluk said in a news release.
Yearwood did not have information about the names or hometowns of those aboard the small jet, or what might have caused the crash.
“We are organizing a team to deploy to the accident site,” he said.
