The NTSB has on their website a preliminary report and summary on the crash on February 2, 2005 of a CL-600 operated by Platinum Jet Management as a private charter off the end of runway 6 at TEB (Teterboro, NJ) airport. This was the crash where the a/c ran off the end of the runway, across a 4 lane divided highway and into a warehouse/distribution building. No one was killed but there was serious injuries to the pilot, the FO and a person in a car that was hit by the a/c.
Here is the basic news release and summary of the NTSB report on this incident: http://www.ntsb.gov/Pressrel/2006/061031.htm
The basic cause was determined to be a failure to recalculate the center of gravity of the a/c after the pilot had more fuel put in shortly before take off. The preliminary report also notes several other issues and recommendations including:
Improvements in the licence standards and requirements of private charters operators. There is confusion on this class of operations that causes problems of safety standards, record keeping and the like.
That any f/a on such a flight must have a certain level of safety training. There was a woman on the a/c that was a hostess, who worked part time for the operator. Although she did assist some of the pax and flight crew, she had no saftey training, incuding operation of the emergency and main doors as well as other safety equipment that an properly trained f/a would have.
That all safety belts must be visible and used as needed. At least two pax were not belted at takeoff and the accident as their belts were under the couch/seat cushions.
The report also notes that the operator changed the weight records with this a/c, and faces additional charges in this incident and for other operational issues.
By the way, about 2 weeks ago that end of that runway had a crumbling concrete arrestor bed installed and completed and a few days later an a/c ended up on it and saved from the fate of the 2/2/2005 crash. There is only 200 feet from the end of the runway and the road, and another 200 or so feet to the buildings hit in the 2/2/2005 crash/

Quoting LTBEWR (Thread starter):

Well to correct this information... The EMAS was "finished" 4 days prior to the incident. By finish I mean all of the blocks were laid down... The EMAS was never turned over to the airport and a lot of smaller things still needed to be done (and still do). To say that the plane was "saved from the fate of the 2/2/05 crash" is just plain ridiculous... The aircraft hit the bed at about 10 mph after not turning off the runway. It only went into the bed about 15 feet, and only took out 15-20 blocks (there are over 2400 blocks total in the bed)... There is also far more than 200 feet from the threshold of 24 to route 46
