Witnesses say the scene felt like it was “out of a movie” as a plane crashed onto a Florida interstate, killing two people.

The pilot and co-pilot died, but they managed to save the lives of three others on board.

Passengers in multiple vehicles sustained minor injuries.

Audio revealed that the pilot told air traffic control that he had “lost both engines” and that the Bombardier Challenger 600 business jet wasn’t going to make it to the airport.

“Challenger Hop-A-Jet 823, lost both engines, emergency, I’m making an emergency landing,” the pilot calmly radios to air traffic control at Naples Airport.

“We’re cleared to land, but we’re not going to make the runway. We’ve lost both engines,” the pilot says right before the plane crashed onto Interstate 75.

“The pilot has been tentatively identified as Edward Daniel Murphy, 50, of Oakland Park, Florida; and co-pilot Ian Frederick Hofmann, 65, of Pompano Beach, Florida, the Collier County Sheriff’s Office said on Facebook Saturday,” the report found.

“One crew member, Sydney Ann Bosmans, 23, of Jupiter, Florida, survived along with passengers Aaron Baker, 35, and Audra Green, 23, who live in Columbus, Ohio,” the report added.

The survivors were taken to the hospital after the crash. Their conditions are unknown.
