We've got some sad news this morning from Russia following reports that a passenger airliner went off the runway during its landing at Moscow's Vnukovo airport and crashed into a highway, leaving four dead and four injured, according to news reports.

The CBC reports that the crash occurred around 4:35 p.m. local time. Officials there aren't sure exactly what happened yet, but they say that the plane made a hard landing and caught fire.

The CBC says unconfirmed reports indicate that the plane was coming from the Czech Republic. Only eight people were aboard at the time.
