Two Dead in Florida Plane CrashTwo passengers have died in a plane crash that occurred on a South Florida highway on Friday afternoon.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) confirmed that a Bombardier Challenger 600 carrying five people crashed on the highway near Naples at around 3:15 p.m.
Three people were able to exit the plane, according to Robin King, a spokesperson for the Naples Airport.
The Collier County Sheriff’s Office is helping with traffic and closures, as southbound lanes on Interstate 75 were closed at mile marker 111, and northbound lanes are closed at the 105-mile markers.
Video footage taken by a witness shows the aircraft bursting into flames and a plume of smoke. The FAA and National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the incident.
