A plane carrying five people, including two minors, crashed into Bluff Mountain near the eastern end shortly before 2:45 on Sunday afternoon.  

According to Sevier County Sheriff Sgt. Robert Stoffle, a family was traveling back home to Florida after a trip to Gatlinburg when their plane crashed in Sevier County. 

Sgt. Stoffle says he believes the plane struck the top of a light pole, got tangled in its wires and crashed to the ground.  He said the pilot may have not seen the light pole because of the fog and rain.

Emergency responders transported the parents and their three kids, an 18-year-old female, 15-year-old male and 10-year-old boy, to UT Medical Center as a precaution.  Sgt. Stoffle says some of the passengers may have suffered minor injuries.  

Authorities have not released the names of that family or any more information at this time.
