Authorities Respond to Plane Crash on Busy Street in Atlanta Suburb

A plane crash-landed along a “busy” road in the Atlanta suburb of Decatur, Georgia, on November 4, according to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and local reports.

According to a statement released by the FAA, the pilot of a single-engine plane that took off from DeKalb-Peachtree Airport in Chamblee declared an emergency and landed on North Decatur Road at 9:53 am Thursday. Local media reported the incident as nonfatal, according to DeKalb County Fire officials.

Video shared to Facebook by Arian J Allen shows emergency responders on the scene Thursday morning.

“Whoever lives close to N Decatur, this is why the power is out,” Allen wrote on Facebook. According to a Georgia Power outage map, several hundred people in the greater Atlanta metro area were without power as a result of the plane crash, which caused several transformers to blow.
