On Thursday morning, four people on board a plane were killed when it crashed into a building in Farmington, Connecticut.

Just before 10:00 a.m., a Citation 560X business jet took off from Plainville’s Robertson Airport and collided with the Trumpf Inc. building in Farmington.

According to Farmington Police, the first cops on the site reported a jet colliding with the structure and completely engulfing it in flames.

The plan was headed to Dare County Regional Airport in North Carolina with four people aboard. Officials confirmed both pilots and both passengers have died as a result of the crash.

Farmington police said witnesses reported the plane had trouble shortly after takeoff. The plane then hit the ground and slid into the building. Farmington police report there is evidence of some kind of mechanical failure during takeoff.

Police officials did say that all Trumpf employees are accounted for and do not believe any employees were injured.

Governor Ned Lamont headed to the scene Thursday afternoon.

Police are urging residents to avoid the area so emergency crews can evacuate the area.

The FAA along with Farmington Police and NTSB are investigating. Officials expect to be processing the scene for several days.

This is an ongoing investigation and will be updated.
