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.
