Eight people were on board when a small plane crashed on Monday in a suburb of Medelln, a city in central Colombia.

There were no early reports of injuries on the ground.

According to a statement from Colombian aviation authorities, the plane crashed shortly after taking off from Olaya Herrera Airport.

Two crew members and six passengers were listed as the victims.

It was not immediately evident if there were more passengers on the plane than eight.

The precise reason for the collision is still unknown.

The airplane had “an engine malfunction” during takeoff, according to Medelln Mayor Daniel Quintero.

“Unfortunately, the pilot could not keep the plane aloft, and it crashed in this neighborhood,” Quintero said.

“Seven homes were destroyed and six other buildings damaged,” Quintero added.

Responding were firefighters and other emergency personnel.

The airplane was headed for Chocó’s western district.
