Atlanta Plane Crash - First On Scene Footage

The plane crashed onto I-285 east at Peachtree Industrial Boulevard. Traffic is shut down in both direction. Authorities say 4 people have died in the crash. The medical examiner has been called to the scene. DeKalb County police's Dr. Cedric Alexander says there were 3 males, a female and a pet onboard the plane. Channel 2's Mark Winne says a source told him the pilot "calmly" reported an issue "climbing out" and said "hey, we're going down." Witnesses say they felt the impact of the plane crash on the interstate. "The impact was large, like a bomb being dropped," said witness Don McGee. Another witness, Blake Green, says the plane propeller flew off on impact. He said the impact sounded like a bomb. The FAA tells Channel 2 Action News it was a Piper PA-32 aircraft that went down after departing from Runway 3 Right. It was flying to Oxford, Mississippi.
