TETERBORO, N.J., Feb. 2 (UPI) -- Two people were missing and 11 injured early Wednesday after a small jet skidded on take-off and hit a warehouse in Teterboro, N.J.

Greg Martin, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration in Washington, said it appeared the plane was departing Runway 6, at approximately 7:20 a.m. when it ran off the 6,000-foot runway, went through a fence and across Route 46 where it struck some cars and finally the warehouse.

The jet is a CL-600 Challenger manufactured by Canadair Ltd., and was bound for Chicago, WINS-AM, New York, said.

Route 46 was closed in both directions and broadcast reports said the airport, in the northern New Jersey suburbs, was closed.
