Ted Stevens Believed to Be on Crashed Plane

Early this morning, a plane believed to be carrying eight people, including former Senator Ted Stevens, crashed in southwest Alaska. There is no word on any casualties at this time.

From the Associated Press:

Alaska National Guard spokesman Maj. Guy Hayes said there were possible fatalities. Five good Samaritans were on scene early Tuesday helping the crash victims, he said. It was unclear how they reached the site.

A U.S. government official told The Associated Press that Alaska authorities have been told the former longtime Republican senator is among several passengers on the plane. The official, who spoke on grounds of anonymity, says Stevens’ condition is unknown.

The federal official declined to be publicly identified because the crash response and investigation are under way.
