THOMSON, GA (FOX Carolina) -

A Greenwood man was among two people who survived a plane crash in eastern Georgia on Wednesday night.

Officials with the National Transportation Safety Board reported the Hawker Beechcraft 390 jet aborted landing at Thomson-McDuffie Regional Airport. It hit a concrete utility pole, which sheered off a wing. The plane traveled another quarter-mile before crashing into a wooded area. 

The accident happened at about 8:30 p.m.

According to WSMV-TV, Dr. Steven Roth was among those killed in the crash, according to Dr. Steven Davis, a plastic surgeon and partner in The Vein Guys. Four other office staffers were also killed.

Another victim identified was 29-year old Tiffany Porter of Albany, GA, sources told WFXG-TV.  

It appears the two pilots survived the crash.

One of the pilots was identified as Rick Trammell, of Greenwood, who owns a charter company called Executive Shuttle, according to Tina Vidal-Smith, spokeswoman for Pacer, the company that owns the medical practice where Roth worked.

The identity of the second pilot was not immediately released.
