Prepare for a traffic disaster Atlanta…
Small Plane Crashes On I-285 E
A busy Atlanta highway could be shut down for up to eight hours after a small plane crashed onto it killing 4 people.
A small plane crashed on a major highway that encircles Atlanta on Friday morning, killing all four people who were aboard and severely snarling traffic, officials said.
The single-engine Piper PA-32 slammed onto I-285 just north of Atlanta after leaving nearby DeKalb-Peachtree Airport, the Federal Aviation Administration said, leaving smoldering wreckage near the concrete barrier separating eastbound and westbound lanes.
The plane clipped a tractor-trailer on the way down, the office of DeKalb County Public Safety Director William Miller said. No motorists were injured, Dekalb County fire department spokesman Capt. Eric Jackson said.
All four people aboard the plane died, Jackson said.
So sad. Be careful out there Atlanta!
