Plane Crash Kills 4 People in Georgia

NTSB and FAA officials are investigating a deadly plane crash in Murray County, Georgia.

Murray County Sheriff Gary Langford said four people died in the crash that happened on Piney Hills Road at 4:44 p.m.

Langford told Channel 3 it was a twin engine Piper PA-23 that went down.

Officials said the victims are from the Tennessee area. Right now, it’s unclear which airport the plane was coming from and where the four people were heading to on Saturday.

At the time of the crash, Langford said the conditions included rain, strong wind, and lightning.

“Most of the people are telling us that the plane did come a part in mid-air and from what we’ve found at the scene, that’s evidently what had happened,” Sheriff Gary Langford of the Murray County Sheriff’s Office said.

He said the wings and engine were separated from the plane. The cockpit was the only part of the plane still intact.
