A cargo plane crashed just east of Toledo Express Airport early Wednesday, according to media reports.


The plane, which was believed to be carrying auto parts, crashed around 2:30 a.m. into a lot containing a truck repair business on Garden Road, the Lucas County Sheriff's Office said.


The plane struck several unoccupied vehicles on the lot, igniting a fire that could be seen from a distance.


Airport manager Joe Rotterdam told reporters the plane was believed to have had a crew of two people, but information about their fate was unknown early Wednesday.


The crash has not affected other flights, and Toledo Express Airport is operating normally Wednesday morning.
