Texas miracle! All 21 people aboard small plane survive after it crashes and bursts into

A private plane carrying 18 baseball fans and three crew from Houston to the American League Championship Series in Boston ran off a runway and burst into flames on Tuesday -  but everyone on board survived and only one person suffered a minor injury.

The McDonnell Douglas MD-87 had 18 passengers and three crew members on board when it rolled through a fence and caught fire while trying to take off from the Houston Executive Airport in Brookshire near Katy, the Federal Aviation Administration said.

The youngest person on board the plane was a 10-year-old child.

The 172-seat capacity aircraft with two jet engines crashed after it allegedly failed to gain altitude at the end of the runway, careened across Morton Road, coming to a rest in the field just north of the airport, where it caught on fire just after 10am. 

Everyone made it off the plane safely and the only reported injury was a passenger with back pain, Waller County Judge Trey Duhon said on Facebook. 

'Anytime you have plane that doesn’t make a landing on the runway like its supposed to, we’re always expecting the worst and hoping for the best and today, we absolutely, positively got the best outcome we could hope for,' said Tim Gibson, Emergency Service District Director for Waller-Harris Emergency Service District 200, told KPRC

Firefighters were working at midday Tuesday to extinguish the raging inferno consuming the wreckage. The FAA and National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the cause of the crash.

The crash resulted in more than 1,800 nearby homes being left without power.

The Texas Department of Public Safety said the plane was headed to Boston. The aircraft is registered to a Spring investment firm that is connected to J Alan Kent, the president and CEO of Flair Builders, a custom homebuilding company.

A spokesperson for the firm confirmed to ABC13 that Kent was on the flight at the time of the crash. 

Judge Duhon said he believes the plane was chartered to Boston for Game 4 of the American League Championship Series, in which the Houston Astros will face off against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park.
