JACKSON, Ga. — Authorities say two people were seriously injured when a plane crashed at a middle Georgia airport.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Lynn Lunsford said a single-engine plane was leaving the ramp at Seven Lakes Estates airstrip around noon Friday when it appeared the engine broke away from the airplane.

He said it was uncertain if the plane was airborne at the time or if it was still taxiing.

Lunsford said investigators were headed to the scene.

Wonder what kind of plane it was. Sounds like a class action lawsuit in the making.
