Four people were killed and four were injured Saturday when a Russian-made airliner overshot a runway on landing at a Moscow airport and crashed onto a nearby highway, officials said.

“According to updated information, four people were killed and four more were injured,” an interior ministry official told RIA Novosti. Russian news agencies said the Tu-204 jet was carrying no passengers and eight crew, although earlier reports had said 12 people were on board.
