US: UPS cargo jet crashes in Birmingham, Alabama

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama (AP) -- A U.S. aviation official says a large UPS cargo plane has crashed near an airport in Birmingham, Alabama.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen tells The Associated Press that the A300 plane crashed on approach to the airport before dawn Wednesday.

There is no information yet on injuries.

Bergen says the plane was en route from Louisville, Kentucky, as UPS Flight 1354.

Toni Bast, a spokeswoman for Birmingham's airport authority, says the plane crashed on the outskirts of Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport.

Bast says the area is outside the airport's perimeter fence. She says the crash hasn't affected airport operations.
