A Boston-bound plane carrying more than 20 people crashed while taking off at Houston Executive Airport on Tuesday morning, officials said.

All passengers and crew were safely removed with at least one minor injury, Waller County Judge Trey Duhon reported via Facebook.

“The information we have at this time indicates that the plane did not attain altitude at the end of the runway and went across Morton Road, coming to a rest in the field just north of the airport, where it caught on fire,”.
Officials say that amazingly no one was killed in the accident in Waller County, and two people were treated in hospital.

The MD-87 aircraft, which had three crew members on board, was taking off from Houston Executive Airport when the accident happened on Tuesday morning. Flames from the aircraft sent huge plumes of smoke into the air that could be seen for miles.
According to the Federal Aviation Administration, the plane smashed through a fence and caught fire in a field while departing Houston Executive Airport shortly after 10 am.
