PLANE CRASHES AT PEARSON

There is a massive thunderstorm hitting Toronto and that may have been what caused a plane crash at Pearson. What appears to be an Air France aircraft (not sure if it's a 747 or an Airbus-latest reports are that it is an Airbus 340 with 200 passengers on board) went off the runway at Pearson and the word on the radio is that black smoke is billowing from the middle of the aircraft. It's ditched south of the 401.

Latest word now is that the whole plane is now on fire. I hope everyone got out but I am really worried that we have really bad news on our hands here.
