A plane carrying four people has crashed on a busy highway in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, on Friday, May 8. Local media reported that all the four people on board were killed when it crashed.

The plane, a Piper PA-32, crashed into the Interstate 285 highway shortly after taking off from the DeKalb Peachtree Airport, the reports said.

DeKalb County Fire Department’s spokesman, Eric Jackson, has confirmed that all the four people on board died in the crash.

He, however, could not give details about the identities of the pilot and passengers on board and the cause of the crash.

The Interstate 285, an east-west highway, was shut down in both directions as authorities started an investigation into the incident.
