Two dead, teenage girl hurt in Alps private jet crash

Two people including the pilot were killed and a teenage girl was injured on Monday when a private plane crashed near the Swiss border in the French Alps, emergency officials and police said.

The plane, a PRM1 corporate jet, crashed around 9:00 am (0800 GMT) in a farm yard near the Annemasse airfield in France's Haute-Savoie region, not far from Geneva, officials said. The plane came down after clipping the top of the farmhouse, they believe.


A police source said that the pilot, a man aged around 50, was killed and that the injured girl, aged around 15, had indicated to rescuers that she was his daughter. She suffered serious injuries to the pelvis but her life was not in danger, the source said.

The cause of the accident and the identity of the second person who died were not immediately clear.
