NEW YORK - An airliner crashed into a home in the US state of New York on Thursday night, killing all 49 people aboard and another person on the ground, New York state police confirmed on Friday. State police spokeswoman Rebecca Gibbons said the plane was carrying 49 people and "there were no survivors." One person on the ground was also killed, local officials said. The crash occurred late last night in suburban Buffalo in northern New York state, nearly a seven-hour drive from New York City. The 50-seat commuter plane, Continental Express Flight 3407 operated by Colgan Air, was flying from Newark to Buffalo when it dived into a single-home house in Clarence Centre, local officials said at a news briefing. The officials said there were 49 people on board, including 44 passengers and four crewmembers, as was confirmed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The Buffalo News quoted Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority spokesman Douglas Hartmayer as saying that crewmembers aboard the flight had reported mechanical problems as the plane approached Buffalo. "I was told by the tower the plane simply dropped off the radar screen," Hartmayer told The Buffalo News. In Washington, an official with the US Department of Homeland Security said there was no indication that terrorism was involved in the crash.
