Authorities at the scene of a fatal small plane crash on I-285 at Peachtree Industrial Boulevard told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution at 2:45 p.m. that they will soon be reopening the interstate to eastbound traffic.

The wreckage has been cleared.

Traffic heading eastbound has been stopped since the crash occurred around 10 a.m. Friday, killing four occupants of a Piper PA-32 aircraft that had just taken off from Peachtree DeKalb Airport.

Traffic heading westbound reopened about three hours after the accident.
