A small private plane crashed into a building in Italy shortly after takeoff Sunday, killing all eight people aboard.

The plane took off from Linate Airport in Milan and was heading to Olbia Airport on the Italian island of Sardinia, according to the Italian news agency ANSA.

It slammed into an unoccupied two-story office building in the San Donato suburb of Milan.

Among the dead were Dan Petrescu, one of the richest businessmen in Romania, as well as his wife, son and family friends.

The Italian Flight Safety Agency (ANSV) has launched an investigation into the accident.

Milan Prosecutor Tiziana Siciliano said an anomaly was detected on the radar screen in connection with the flight, but the plane did not send out any alarm.
