Atlanta news station, WSB-TV has obtained new video of a deadly plane crash that ended in a fiery wreck on Interstate 285. The wreck killed four people. The video from the Chamblee Police Department shows the plane disappearing below the horizon and then a large plume of smoke emerges from the interstate. Moments later, the officer drives up to the crash and the video shows the plane engulfed in flames.

Greg Byrd, 53, and his two sons, Christopher, 27, and Phillip, 25, died in the crash on May 8, along with Christopher's fiancee, Jackie Kulzer. The four were headed to the University of Mississippi in Oxford to see Greg Byrd's younger son, Robert, graduate.

The single-engine Piper PA-32 had just left DeKalb Peachtree Airport. Shortly after 10 a.m., the plane collided with an Interstate highway barrier during a forced-landing attempt, according to a National Transportation Safety Board preliminary report released this week.
