In a tragic incident today, a private jet crashed onto Interstate 75 near Naples, Florida, during rush hour, resulting in at least two fatalities. The pilot reportedly lost control of the aircraft after both engines failed, causing it to burst into flames upon impact with the highway.

ABC’s Victor Okendo reports on the harrowing scene as the private jet engulfed in flames turned the busy Florida highway into chaos. Eyewitnesses describe a massive fireball and a scene of horror as the jet collided with the roadway, leaving behind a trail of fiery wreckage.

The aircraft, identified as a Bombardier Challenger 600, was on its final approach to land at Naples Airport when the pilot declared an emergency, citing engine failure. Despite desperate attempts to reach the runway, the plane crashed just two miles from its intended destination.

Authorities confirm that of the five individuals onboard, two tragically lost their lives in the crash. However, there were miraculous survivors as three individuals managed to escape the fiery wreckage.

Eyewitnesses recount the intensity of the crash, with one witness, Joe Robinson, expressing his shock at the catastrophic scene and the heat felt from the flames even from the opposite side of the highway.

The crash has caused significant traffic disruptions, with authorities closing a stretch of I75 as investigations into the incident commence. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is leading the investigation to determine the cause of the engine failure.

As the community grapples with the aftermath of this devastating event, our thoughts are with the families of those affected by this tragedy.
