New York [USA]: Four Americans were among the five people killed when chartered plane crashed into the roof of a mall in Australia.

According to CNN, those killed included co-founder of a law firm, Russell Munsch, a retired CEO, Glenn Garland, and a former FBI agent, Greg Reynolds De Haven. All three of them were Texans.

The men were among four Americans killed shortly after the plane took off Tuesday from Melbourne’s Essendon Airport. Authorities have not identified the fourth passenger or the Australian pilot, who also died.

The cause of the crash is still being investigated. Earlier, some witnesses said the aircraft was flying precariously close to houses before the incident, which happened under cloudless skies in seemingly good conditions. (ANI)
