Federal report released on Atlanta crash that killed 4

February 01, 2019 - 6:02 AM

ATLANTA - A federal report shows that a business jet rolled over before hitting some trees and crashing in the Atlanta area in December, killing four Tennessee residents.

WSB-TV reported the National Transportation Safety Board released a preliminary report Thursday on the Dec. 20 crash near the Fulton County Airport.

Video from a security camera about a half mile from the crash site shows the jet making a "descending left turn" just before it rolled over. The plane hit a tree about 50 feet (15 metres) before hitting the ground. The impact ripped the plane into pieces that were scattered over about 325 feet (100 metres).

The NTSB will release a final report on the crash in about a year.

The victims were Wei Chen, John Chen, Bruce Pelynio and Danielle Robinson, all from Memphis.
