Seven killed in Kingston plane crash, TSB says

"We are now confirming that there are numerous fatalities in regards to the small downed aircraft located this evening", police said in a tweet about the accident, near the city of Kingston in Ontario.

A Search and Rescue helicopter from 424 Squadron was called to help search for a downed plane following a crash in Kingston on November 27, 2019.

A police auto blocks Creekford Road in Kingston, Ont., on November 28, 2019., following a fatal plane crash.

Const. Ash Gutheinz of the Kingston police says there's "no indication" there were any survivors from the crash.

The Transportation Safety Board told CTV News Ottawa that the plane is a small, single-engine aircraft called a "Piper PA-32", which seats up to six people.

TSB spokesperson Rox-Anne D'Aoust said in the morning that the plane took off from Toronto's Buttonville Municipal Airport in Markham, north of Toronto, and was headed to Kingston's airport.

The TSB said it expects to have more information at about 8 a.m.

The TSB says a team of investigators is expected to arrive on scene Thursday morning.

Krepski said the TSB will be working with the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board because the plane was registered in the States.

Chopper 24 was allowed near the crash site on Thursday, revealing a blackened path of charred earth past the dead end of a dirt road leading to a wooded area. Environment Canada warned of "strong southwesterly winds gusting to 80 km/h".
