SANTA MONICA, Calif., Sept. 29 (UPI) -- A small business jet went off a runway and hit a hangar at the airport in Santa Monica, Calif., Sunday, authorities said. There was no word on injuries.

The twin-engine Cessna Citation crashed after landing at 6:20 p.m. PDT, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor told the Los Angeles Times. The plane had taken off from Hailey, Idaho, he said.
