An Asiana Airlines flight crashed as it was landing at San Francisco airport on Saturday, a federal aviation official said. It wasn't immediately known the extent of the injuries.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Lynn Lunsford said the Boeing 777
crashed at San Francisco International Airport while landing.   It wasn't immediately clear what caused the crash.

A witness says the landing gear had already come down.  The plane reportedly wobbled for a minute and eventually came to a stop and was engulfed in smoke.

San Francisco General Hospital spokeswoman Rachel Kagan told KCBS radio in San Francisco that 10 passengers from a jetliner that crashed at San Francisco International Airport had been transported to the hospital.

She said the hospital received two children and eight adults, all in critical condition. She said tents were being set up outside the hospital for triage.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Laura Brown said Flight 214 crashed while landing on runway 28 left at 11:26 PDT.

A video clip posted to YouTube showed smoke coming from a jet on the tarmac. Passengers could be seen jumping down the emergency slides.

We'll have the very latest tonight on Channel 8 Eyewitness News at 6 & 10.
