(GoRealNewsNow.com) – In a tragic incident, three people tragically died in a plane crash when a Beech V35 aircraft broke apart in the sky in Tennessee, near Franklin in Williamson County.

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is now leading the investigation into what caused the accident.

An eyewitness called 911 around noon and reported to have heard an explosion-like sound, which authorities suspect was the moment the plane crashed.

In addition, Chief Deputy Mark Elrod of the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office shared details during a press briefing.

He explained that the aircraft seemed to have disintegrated in mid-air, although it is still too early to determine the precise cause of the disaster. Elrod also indicated that the crash resulted in a widespread debris field stretching over half a mile.

“This is a tragic scene,” Elrod remarked. “We’re unsure exactly where the crash started and where it ended.”

Fortunately, no buildings were hit, but local residents discovered parts of the airplane scattered across their yards and driveways.

A nearby road will be closed to support the ongoing investigation and cleanup efforts. When the tragedy happened, the aircraft was traveling from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, to Louisville, Kentucky.

According to ABC News, the NTSB plans to investigate the crash details in-depth later this week.
