    (CNN) — A small plane crashed in east Georgia on Wednesday night, leaving five people dead, authorities said.

    The light jet aircraft landed at Thomson-McDuffie Regional Airport in Thomson, and ran off the end of the runway, according to Kathleen Bergen, a Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman.

    Two people survived the crash and were rushed to a hospital, McDuffie County Sheriff Logan Marshall told CNN affiliate WJBF.

    The flight took off from John C. Tune Airport in Nashville, Tennessee.

    The two cities are about 350 miles apart; Thomson is about 30 miles west of Augusta.

    The aircraft is a Hawker Beechcraft 390/Premier I.
