NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Authorities say a small plane believed to be carrying four people has crashed outside a YMCA in suburban Nashville.

Nashville fire department spokeswoman Kim Lawson said there did not appear to be any survivors from the aircraft. She said some cars near the YMCA were damaged from the crash, which was reported around 5 p.m. CST Monday.

The Federal Aviation Administration said in a statement late Monday afternoon that the plane is a Gulfstream 690C that departed from Great Bend Municipal Airport in Great Bend, Kan., and crashed 10 miles south of John C. Tune Airport in Nashville. The FAA said the flight plan listed four people on board.

According to the flight-tracking website FlightAware, the plane traveled from Clarence E. Page Municipal Airport in Oklahoma City to Great Bend around midday before heading for Nashville.
