New video from Florida shows Friday's plane crash in Naples — a heartbreaking perspective offered by an eagle-eyed motorist on I-75.

Terrifying new images show the moment a plane crashed on I-75 in Florida, killing two people.

The video shows the private jet piloted by Edward Daniel Murphy, 50, and second-in-command Ian Frederick Hofmann, 65, crashing after its engines failed.

The two pilots were killed on impact, but thanks to their ability to guide the Bombardier Challenger 60 down the busy highway, three others on board survived.

Video shows the plane crashing into a car as it fell, before bursting into flames as it collided with a highway median. More images showed the three survivors fleeing, as flames raged around them.

A huge plume of smoke followed, after which the feds were called to the scene to examine the wreckage. They went on to reveal that the plane had been just minutes away from safety; in this case, the runway at Naples Airport, just a few miles away.

The driver, identified by DailyMail.com as Miami truck driver Alfonso Del Nodal, was one of several drivers who captured the impromptu landing on the makeshift landing strip.

“Breaking,” he wrote in the caption of one of two clips showing the accident posted on his Facebook, two days after the accident occurred.

Other images, including video captured by motorist Kyle Cavaliere, showed huge plumes of smoke rising from the wreckage moments after the plane crashed.

“It also landed on a car,” Cavaliere exclaims as he approaches the scene, driving his car closer to the enormous flames that can be seen among the debris strewn across the road.

The plane was reportedly traveling from Columbus, Ohio, to Naples Airport, and the feds have since identified everyone on board.

Crew member Sydney Ann Bosmans, 23, along with passengers Aaron Baker, 35, and Audra Green, 23, narrowly escaped with their lives and were filmed fleeing the fiery inferno after it crashed on Friday. .

Officials on the ground further clarified that Murphy, a veteran pilot, was from Oakland Park, Florida, and that Hofmann was from Pompano Beach, Florida.

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is leading the investigation.

Other images showed the three survivors, two passengers and a crew member, running away from the burning plane.

‘Is there anyone else in there?’ asks flight attendant Cavaliere as he runs to help.

‘Yes, yes our pilots!’ one of the survivors shouts in response. Caveliere then asks if they are alive and the woman replies that she doesn’t know.

The frantic survivors then start asking him to use his phone as the clip ends.

NTSB officials later said the pilots, who have years of flying experience, reported a twin-engine failure just before the crash in a harrowing mayday call to air traffic control.

Audio of that relief correspondence has since been released, capturing what are panicked voices or a damaged plane, although it is difficult to tell.

The feds added that the plane was just a minute away from making an emergency landing in Naples, while another moment of audio revealed that Murphy knew they wouldn’t make it.

FlightAware data initially showed how the plane had been traveling from Ohio State University’s airport, prompting the university to issue a statement to claim that the plane was simply using its facilities and had no connection to the university itself. .

The plane actually belonged to Hop-a-Jet, a private charter company based in Florida, where Bosmans and the two pilots worked.

The private plane crashed into cars on a major highway, causing a huge explosion and killing two of the five people on board.

After the crash, the company said it “received confirmed reports of an accident involving one of our chartered aircraft near Naples” and promised to send a team to the crash site.

“Our immediate concern is the well-being of our passengers, crew members and their families,” he said of that decision.

Meanwhile, the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) was forced to close all southbound lanes on the heavily traveled highway for a full 24 hours while it investigated the crash.

A preliminary report from the agency, which is tasked with monitoring air traffic across the country, will be written within 30 days, he said.
