Plane Crash in Clarence...

Holy smokes. Live video coming in on the local stations -- no idea the details yet. It appears to have been a smaller aircraft, but there is a report that a home was completely leveled.

These reports are all over the place.

Channel 4 says 50-60 people on board.

Channel 7 says 20-30, and claims it is a Continental flight.

hopefully everyone is ok. from what they were reporting they were taking people who were in the plane to ECMC, so it sounds like people got out.

49 killed as plane crashes into Clarence Center home

Forty-nine people reportedly died when an aircraft identified as a Continental Airlines flight crashed into a house in Clarence Center shortly after 10 p.m. last night, starting a huge fire which poured thick smoke throughout the hamlet.

Unconfirmed reports from a source at Buffalo Niagara International Airport said that the dead included 44 passengers, four crew members and a person on the ground.

County Executive Chris Collins said that there may have been as many as 50 people aboard the plane and crew members had reported mechanical problems as they approached Buffalo Niagara International Airport. Several injured people were taken from the scene to Erie County Medical Center for treatment.

Television reports said the crash site was 6050 Long St., not far from the Clarence Center Fire Hall on Clarence Center Road. Police said that one man was in the residence at the time of the crash.

I'm watching the 24-hour news channels right now, and man, it's sad. They were talking to the brother of a 24-year old law student from Clarence that was on board...

That's right at the four corners down the street from both my boss and my best friend's parents' house. I know exactly where that is. Crazy.
