Seven Dead In Canadian Plane Crash

(CNN) -- Seven people were killed when a small plane crashed after takeoff on Wednesday outside Quebec City in Canada, according to Quebec City Jean Lesage International Airport spokesman Richard Girard.

Five of the seven were passengers and two were crew members, Girard said. None of the victims' names have been released.

Girard said the twin-engine Beechcraft King Air plane owned by Aeropro had trouble at takeoff and crashed in a private field northwest of the Jean-Lesage airport around 6 a.m. ET.

The flight was headed to Sept-Iles on Quebec's North Shore, he said.

The crash caused no traffic problems or flight cancellations at the airport, said Girard.
