BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (AP) -- A small plane with at least five people on board has crashed near the city of Bloomington in central Illinois.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the Cessna 414 took off from Indianapolis and crashed just short of the airport in Bloomington after midnight Tuesday.

The agency had no information about possible injuries or deaths. It said that based on preliminary information there were at least five people on board, but possibly as many as seven.

The McLean County Sheriff's Office did not immediately respond to a message seeking more information.

The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating, but there was no initial word on what caused the crash.
