ALMA, Georgia — Bacon County Coroner Vic Peacock says a man and woman from the metro Atlanta area have been killed in a small plane crash.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen says a Hawker Beechcraft A36 went down Sunday afternoon near Alma — which is about 70 miles northwest of Brunswick.

Peacock says 58-year-old Sid Shah, of Tucker, and Shama Gamkhar were killed in the crash. Authorities were unsure of the woman's age, and Peacock says investigators believe Shah and Gamkhar were husband and wife.

Bergen says the plane was flying from Fernandina Beach, Florida to Lawrenceville, Georgia when the crash happened.

Peacock says the plane landed in a rural area and crashed into a cluster of trees.

Authorities are investigating the cause of the crash.
