A small business jet swerved off a runway after landing in Santa Monica, Calif. Sunday night, crashing into a hangar and killing everyone on board.

Officials said in a press conference the crash was “unsurvivable,” and the partial collapse of the hangar made it difficult for rescue personnel to get to the wreckage, according to CBS.

The FAA and NTSB could not confirm how many people were on the jet, which seated eight.

An airport employee told a CBS reporter that a tire popped as the plane landed. The FAA and NTSB could not confirm that happened.

An NTSB spokesperson gave the tail number of the plane as N194SJ. According to, the 2003 Cessna 525A belonged to Creative Real Estate Exchange, LLC, a debt management and real estate firm that lists an address in Malibu.

The twin-engine Cessna Citation had taken off from Hailey, Idaho.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the accident.
