Federal investigators will review an accident in which four people were hurt when a small jet registered to an Alabama corporation ran off a runway in metro Atlanta.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen says the National Transportation Safety Board will review the mishap, which happened Monday at DeKalb-Peachtree Airport.

Bergen says a Hawker Beechcraft 40 ran off the end of a runway after landing and crashed through a fence.

DeKalb County Fire Chief Edward O'Brien says all four people on board were out of the aircraft before emergency crews arrived.

He says all four had minor injuries and were taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.

Bergen says the plane was arriving from Gadsden, Ala. FAA records show it's registered to a small corporation in Centre, Ala.
