    Victims of a Boeing 777 plane crash at San Francisco’s airport are reportedly being taken to area hospitals. The Asiana Airlines flight from Seoul, Korea, crash landed on runway 28L after being in flight more than 10 hours. Pictures and video from the scene show smoke billowing from the plane and the tail separated from the fuselage. Gaping holes also are apparent in the roof of the aircraft that has been blackened by fire. The plane was a 777 Boeing that carries hundreds of people. KCBS Radio is reporting 291 people were aboard this ill-fated flight. The weather was reported to be clear at the time of the crash. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) reportedly has a team of investigators on its way. Robert Clifford and Kevin Durkin, partners at the firm, served as lead counsel in the last major commercial flight that crashed on the west coast, Alaska Air Flight 261 that crashed in the Pacific Ocean in 2000. They served on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee and the Administrative/Management Committee.
