(CNN) -- There are "multiple fatalities" after a 50-seat Delta commuter flight, en route from Lexington, Kentucky, to Atlanta's Hartsfield Airport, crashed Sunday morning near Kentucky's Blue Grass Airport, airlines and airport officials told CNN.
Federal Aviation Administration officials said Delta Flight 5191 -- which was operated by Delta's commuter carrier, Comair -- crashed shortly after takeoff in a wooded area about a mile from the airport.
Details are still very sketchy, but it appears that the plane crashed just after 6 a.m. into a field on the airport property. An eyewitness told LEX 18 that he heard a large boom, then saw a bright flash of light.
Sources tell 9News the Comair plane was carrying 47 passengers and 3 crew members.
9News sources also tell us there is only 1 survivor.
Comair Flight # 5191
From Lexington to Atlanta
If you are a family member or friend seeking information regarding passengers on Flight #5191, please call Comair at:
If you are a member of the media seeking information, please call 1-404-715-2554 (Delta) or 1-800-361-2608 (Comair).
would appear there are no choppers that can get on the scene for live video and also Police have roped off the crash site to the extent it is keeping media crews away from even getting near the site.
