Narrative:
Crashed in a corn field.
The pilot and passengers appear to be okay.
According to FlightAware.com, a website that tracks flights, the airplane took off from Manassas Regional Airport - KHEF, in Virginia at 10:52 a.m. en route to Flagler County Airport - KXFL, in Palm Coast, Fla.

Air traffic controllers at Florence Regional Airport - KFLO, Florence, South Carolina, were alerted at about 1 p.m. of a plane that had been damaged by turbulence that may have lost an engine and was trying to make it to the airport.

The website shows the plane circled back north shortly after passing the Florence Regional Airport in an attempt to reach the airport.

But mechanical issues prevented the propeller-less white and blue Beechcraft from reaching Florence Regionalís runway 1/36; instead it landed on cornstalks in a field between Poor Farm Road and Gray Lane in Effingham, South Carolina.
