'Several deaths' after twin-engine plane crashes at Florida airport

Five people died when the Cessna 340 crashed shortly after take off

The cause wasn't immediately clear, but authorities said it was 'likely related to the fog'.

After taking off, the plane came down on the airport's east runway in what Judd described as a "horrific" crash. Victoria Shannon Worthington, 26, and her husband, Peter Worthington Jr., 27, also were on board.

The plane was taking off just after 7 a.m. from Bartow Municipal Airport in a dense fog when it crashed and caught fire, said Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd. Among them was a Baltimore city school teacher and a University of Maryland law student.

Authorities said John Shannon filed a flight plan Sunday morning to fly to Key West, Florida. This is a tragedy any time, but it is so much worse because it happened on Christmas Eve.

The sheriff's office statement says there were "several deaths".

Victoria Shannon and Peter Worthington were married in June at Baltimore's George Peabody Library, according to a wedding announcement.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the Shannon, Worthington, and Clayton families". No additional information about the pilot or passengers aboard the plane has been released.

The National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration will be investigating the crash.
