Five dead as plane crashes on road

Five people, including two New York City investment bankers, died when a small plane crashed onto a busy motorway.

Greenhill & Co says two managing directors were aboard the plane that crashed on Interstate 287 in Morris Township, New Jersey.

They were 45-year-old Jeffrey Buckalew and 36-year-old Rakesh Chawla.

Buckalew is the registered owner of the single-engine plane and has a pilot's licence. Greenhill says his wife and their two children were also aboard.

Authorities say the plane had left a local airport bound for Atlanta when there was a garbled transmission and it disappeared from the radar.
