MORRIS TOWNSHIP, N.J. — Crews have removed a large section of plane from a tree a quarter-mile from where the aircraft crashed on the median of a New Jersey highway. All five aboard were killed.
Crews are cleaning wreckage scattered over an area of at least half a mile as investigators seek clues to why the single-engine plane went down Wednesday on Interstate 287.
The National Transportation Safety Board plans to examine all the wreckage at a warehouse in Delaware.
Shortly before the plane crashed, the pilot was discussing ice conditions with an air traffic controller. The NTSB says investigators don't yet know if weather played a role.
Killed were two investment bankers heading for Georgia, a wife of one of them, and two children. No one on the ground was hurt.
