Plane crash out of Lexington

Mark at BlueGrassReport is giving excellent coverage of all info developing re: the crash this AM. I've already received an email from at least one friend who has been affected by a death in the crash.

The running theory right now is that the pilot somehow used the wrong runway, the shorter of two, when the longer one would have been required for a safe takeoff. People in medicine are obsessed with system error over human error, but this sounds like a pretty terrible example of one or the other, likely the former. One survivor is in critical condition at UK Hospital. The other 49 folks didn't fare so well.
