NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A fire department spokeswoman said there don't appear to be any survivors from a plane that crashed Monday evening outside a YMCA in suburban Nashville, Tenn.

The Federal Aviation Administration said the flight plan listed four people on board.

Nashville fire department spokeswoman Kim Lawson says some cars near the YMCA were damaged from the crash that was reported around 5 p.m. Monday.

The FAA said in a statement that the plane is a Gulfstream 690C that departed from Great Bend Municipal Airport in Great Bend, Kan., and crashed 10 miles south of John C. Tune Airport in Nashville.

According to the flight-tracking website FlightAware, the plane traveled from Clarence E. Page Municipal Airport in Oklahoma City to Great Bend around midday before heading for Nashville.

The plane is registered to an agricultural company located just outside Great Bend. Federal investigators are en route to the scene.
