Authorities were notified of the crash at 4:33 p.m. (5:33 p.m. EDT), said Kurt Pickering, a spokesman for the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency.

The twin-engine Cessna Citation departed Malden, Missouri, en route to Atlanta, but reported engine trouble and diverted to McKellar-Sipes Regional Airport in Jackson.
