UPDATE: The Augusta Chronicle has an update on the identity of some of the passengers:

"A woman who identified herself as Dr. Steven Roth’s mother-in-law said late Wednesday that Roth – a vascular surgeon with Vein Guys – was on the plane and that her daughter was at a local hospital, but the family did not know Roth’s condition"

Should add, the 5200' runway also warns of deer often crossing the runway - unconfirmed but the actual location of the wreckage seems to be fairly far from the runway!!

Weather and winds clearly not a factor.

Should be a press release shortly, I'm hearing the aircraft aborted the landing, and struck a 60' utility pole, then crashed into the forest - fragmenting on impact.

Both pilots were airlifted to local hospital, the co-pilot had been found walking 300 feet from the wreckage - he has either been transferred or released?, the Captain - Richard Trammell has been upgraded to fair condition from critical.
