Georgia plane crash near a General Mills factory kills two

COVINGTON, Ga. – Two people were killed when a small plane has crashed near a General Mills plant about 35 miles east of Atlanta, officials confirmed.

“Obviously this was a devastating crash and there are no survivors,” Covington police Capt. Ken Malcom said Thursday night, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Crews had recovered one body as of late Thursday, Fox 5 Atlanta reported.

“We are working on a lead to determine who the victims were in the crash,” Malcom said, adding it was a relief the incident did not hit the cereal manufacturer’s plant close by. “The fact that it didn’t crash into the plant saved many lives.”

According to witnesses, the plane had departed from Covington Municipal Airport around 6:45 p.m., police said.
