NAPLES, Fla — New video shows the first moments after a plane crashed onto Interstate 75 Friday in Collier County. Kyle Cavaliere took the video, as he rushed toward the burning plane.

Three of the five people inside the plane survived. In the video, you can hear them tell Cavaliere that they think the pilots are still inside.

Those pilots told air traffic control, minutes earlier, that both engines on the jet had failed and they would have to make an emergency landing. The plane crashed near the Golden Gate Parkway exit.

Cavaliere also took video as he drove up to the crash site, just seconds after impact.

An SUV was also hit in the crash. FHP says the three women inside were not injured.

Northbound lanes of the interstate are back open, but the southbound lanes at the Golden Gate Parkway exit are closed. FHP says they will remain closed while the investigation and clean up continues.

The NTSB is asking that anyone who has video of the plane before it crashed, to email it to witness@ntsb.gov
