CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- WSAZ has learned both the pilot and co-pilot who died in a crash Friday morning are from West Virginia.

We have also learned the victims are a man and a woman, but their names have not been released.

Authorities on scene say the Short 330 aircraft came in "too hot" sideways and hit the runway and then rolled and went sideways down a hill. "Too hot" means the plane was coming in at too steep an angle and too fast for a safe landing.

Airport officials say the runway or weather didn't cause the crash.

When emergency crews arrived on scene, they reported heavy entrapment.

Air guard, army guard, Charleston Police and Fire along with Yeager crews responded to the crash.

Yeager Airport will remain closed until sometime Saturday.

The NTSB is driving to the scene and will not be able to give the all clear to open the airport until they arrive and examine the scene.
