Authorities say a Boeing 767 cargo jetliner heading to Houston with three individuals aboard has crashed into a bay just east of the town.
Lynn Lunsford with the Federal Aviation Administration says the dual-engine aircraft crashed Saturday into Trinity Bay.
Lunsford did not know the standing of the individuals aboard and the Chambers County Sheriff’s Office couldn’t instantly be reached for comment.
The workplace stated in a Facebook submit the aircraft has been situated at the north end of the bay. No other details have been immediately obtainable.
Lunsford says Atlas Air Flight 3591 had departed Miami earlier and an FAA alert was issued after officers misplaced radar and radio contact with the craft when it was about 30 miles (48 kilometers) southeast of George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston
