Atlanta Plane Crash Kills Four, Stalls Traffic on Interstate

Airplane accident attorneys note a May 8, 2015 CNN report of an Atlanta plane crash on an interstate that killed all four passengers and stalled traffic for hours. The Federal Aviation Commission reported that the crash occurred on Interstate 285 shortly after the plane left DeKalb Peachtree Airport, when the aircraft collided with the concrete barrier that separates eastbound and westbound traffic.

No Motorists Killed by Plane Crash

According to the report, witnesses traveling the highway prior to the plane crash reported seeing the aircraft flying low to the ground before the impact, and then noted a massive fireball that sent smoke billowing in the air.

A commercial truck driver was among the witnesses, and believes that he saved his own life by immediately slamming on his brakes. The plane then crashed a short distance from his tractor-trailer after clipping the front of his truck, killing all four passengers who were on their way to a graduation ceremony at the University of Mississippi. According to an investigator from the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), the cause of the crash is undetermined, but the NTSB will reconstruct the airplane in an attempt to determine the cause of the crash.
