Authorities say two pilots suffered minor injuries after a corporate jet hydroplaned and crashed after landing on a runway slick with rain in Macon.
The Telegraph newspaper reports (http://bit.ly/RnJZ59 ) the Beech 400 jet slid on the runway, then crossed an embankment and a road before crashing in a wooded area Tuesday morning. Records show the plane took off in Charleston, S.C. It's owned by Dewberry Capital, an Atlanta-based real estate company.
Bibb County sheriff's Sgt. Sean DeFoe says the pilot had to be cut from the plane by firefighters, but he and the co-pilot suffered only minor injuries. Their one passenger, whose name was not immediately released, was unharmed.
Ocmulgee East Boulevard was shut down as the Federal Aviation Administration surveyed the wreckage.
