Small plane crash near Atlanta kills four

When people in New York fly on small planes, they may look for fun, adventure or simple convenience. Unfortunately, however, in the case of a small aviation aircraft crash, victims may deal with costly expenses as a result. On Feb. 8, 2020, one small jet crashed 50 miles north of Atlanta, where wreckage was found in a wooded area far away from any major road or town. Local officials confirmed that four people died as a result of the plane crash and that deputies did not expect to recover survivors when they located the crash site.

Officials said that the private plane crash happened three miles away from any large road and that members of the public originally found the site. After hearing or seeing the crash, they used all-terrain vehicles to search the surrounding areas. A sheriff's department spokesperson said that the specific location of the small aviation crash was fully accessible only on foot. Witnesses said that they were aware of the crash when they heard a loud booming sound. The crash came amid a heavy snowstorm in the area, but officials said it was unclear whether weather conditions contributed to the airplane crash.

Like other small airplane accidents, the crash is being investigated by the National Transportation Safety Board. The airplane crashed just over 10 minutes after it departed Falcon Field at the Atlanta Regional Airport. Federal radar indicated that a Cessna Citation suddenly disappeared from its indicators at around 10:10 a.m. on the day of the crash.

Small plane crashes can lead to costly medical bills or the death of a beloved loved one. Some planes may crash due to poor maintenance or defective construction, while other accidents may be caused by pilot negligence. An aviation accident attorney may help private airplane accident victims seek compensation for their damages.
