  • 2 dead after UPS-operated plane crashes at West Virginia airport

Two people were killed Friday when a cargo plane crashed in Charleston, West Virginia, according to Kanawha County Manager Jennifer Herrald.

The Air Cargo Carriers plane had departed from Louisville, Kentucky, at 5:43 a.m. and arrived at the Charleston, West Virginia, airport at 6:51 a.m., Plante said.

The aircraft, a Short Brothers 330 model owned by Air Cargo Carriers, was contracted by UPS, airport spokesperson Mike Plante told ABC News.

Plante added that accidents at Yeager are rare and that the runway's length is on par with major airports in NY and Chicago.

Aviation expert James-Paul Dice, an aircraft pilot and chief meteorologist at WBRC-TV in Birmingham, AL, says weather could have played a part in the crash. They were the only people on board, WSAZ reported.

Investigators with the National Transportation Safety Board were still working at the crash site on Sunday.

No names have been released; however, airport officials confirmed the victims are the pilot and co-pilot.

The airport is operating under a Level 3 emergency which is the highest level.

Plante says there was no indication of any issues with the aircraft before the incident. The fuselage, the plane's central structure, came to rest on the side of a hill about 650 feet from its initial point of contact with the runway and about 40 degrees left of the runway heading, he added.

New outlets report emergencies crews are at the scene.

It wasn't immediately clear whether additional injuries have been reported.

In the next phase of the crash's aftermath, members of the NTSB's Recovery Company will "begin to cut the plane in sections so that it can be removed" from a hillside area more than 600 feet below Yeager's runway.
