NAPLES, Fla. --- — A semi truck driver's dash cam managed to record the private jet that crashed on I-75 in flight just seconds before the crash.

Alfonso Del Nodal was driving southbound on the interstate on February 9 when the jet came into view then hit the ground, followed by a black plume of smoke. It's one of a handful of videos that have been made public and that Fox 4 has seen, that shows the flight of the jet and actual impact.
