Plane Crashes on Atlanta Highway

At around 10:00am this morning a small airplane crashed unto Peachtree Industrial Boulevard in Atlanta, Georgia. Spokesman Capt. Eric Jackson, from the fire department of DeKalb County, reported that all four occupants of the plane were killed in the crash.

The plane, a Piper PA-32, had barely taken off from the DeKalb Peachtree Airport before it crashed. Two vehicles on the road had a close call when the plane came down, but in the end no cars were hit by the aircraft according to Crystal Hunt.

The Dunwoody Police promptly closed down both directions of Interstate 285, posting the news twice on Twitter and stating that people needed to use alternate routes.
