5 Killed in Nashville Plane Crash; Watch Moment of Impact

DEVELOPING STORY: Five people were killed when a small plane crashed Monday night in west Nashville alongside Interstate 40. Police say there were no survivors.

“When that plane did go down, it did, as witnesses described, implode on impact. That impact was catastrophic and did not leave any survivors,” Nashville Fire Department spokesperson Kendra Loney told the same news conference.

Video surveillance shows the plane careening over the busy roadway and slamming into a grassy area.

A passing motorist filmed the immediate aftermath showing the fuselage of the plane completely engulfed in flames.

Police said the pilot had requested an emergency landing at nearby John Tune Airport, having radioed to say he was having engine trouble.

“Approval was given to land on runway 2 at John Tune Airport. But the pilot then radioed that the aircraft was not going to make it,” said Don Aaron, public affairs director at MNPD, in a news conference at the crash scene Monday night.

Nashville Mayor Freddie O’Connell said in a statement on X: “Our thoughts go out to the loved ones of all those on board the single-engine aircraft that crashed near Interstate 40 this evening.”

The names of those on board have not been released. Watch below and click here to get Todd’s new book, “Twilight’s Last Gleaming: Can America Be Saved?”
