(CNN) — A jet carrying seven people crashed Wednesday in east Georgia, a spokeswoman for the Federal Aviation Administration said.

The Hawker Beechcraft 390/Premier I jet landed at about 8:30 p.m. at Thomson-McDuffie Regional Airport in Thomson, and ran off the end of the runway, said FAA’s Kathleen Bergen.

The flight departed John C. Tune Airport in Nashville, Tennessee, for Thomson-McDuffie, she said.

The two cities are about 350 miles apart; Thomson is about 30 miles west of Augusta.
