Sheriff No likely survivors in jetliner crash near Houston

A twin-engine cargo plane with three people onboard crashed near Baytown, Texas, on Saturday, authorities said. The aircraft departed Miami International Airport with Houston Intercontinental airport as its destination at 11:33 local time, and crashed "shortly before 12:45", according to an FAA statement.

Initial reports indicate three people were aboard the aircraft.

Sheriff Brian C. Hawthorne described the crash as "total devastation".

Flight 3591, operated by Atlas Air, lost radar and radio contact roughly 30 miles southeast of Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport just before crashing, prompting the FAA to issue an alert notice. "Knowing what I saw, I don't think anyone could survive it".
