A Bombardier Challenger 600 business jet crashed onto a highway in Florida on Friday. At least two people were killed, the Collier County Sheriff’s Office said. Officials said there are three survivors.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration, the crash occurred on Interstate 75 near Naples around 3:15pm local time. The jet had five people aboard.

Local media reported that the jet collided with a vehicle.

The plane was traveling from the Ohio State Executive Airport in Columbus to Naples Airport.

Robin King, the director of communications for Naples Airport, told reporters that the plane was due to land, but “about two or three minutes before that, our tower received word from the pilots that they have, quote, lost both engines.”

Videos filmed by multiple motorists show the wreck engulfed in flames.

The doomed plane belonged to Hop-a-Jet, a local charter company, the Daily Beast reported, citing online flight records.
