More than 4,500 passengers, all from Alaska, have been hospitalized in the crash.
The National Transportation Safety Board has issued a “severe incident” advisory for the flight, which landed on the tarmac at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Thursday, according to CNN.
The plane was a private jet, which means it was not inspected by regulators before it took off, the NTSB said.
A spokesperson for the airline said it was “not aware of any problems with the aircraft’s structural integrity.”
Officials on board said the plane was traveling at a high rate of speed.
The crash comes a few weeks after a plane crashed in the North Dakota countryside killing all 16 people on board, killing the pilot and injuring four others.
