NTSB releases report in Dawsonville plane crash

Posted: Updated:
DAWSONVILLE, GA (CBS46) -

The National Transportation Safety Board released its preliminary report on the plane crash in Dawsonville just two weeks ago.

Dr. Jack Culbertson, long-time surgeon at Emory, was killed on Dec. 2 in a small plane crash along Highway 136 and Auraria Road.

The report said Culbertson made several turns before losing radar contact, but it doesn't appear there were any mechanical problems with the engine.

A GPS and engine monitor were found in the wreckage and sent to the NTSB lab for investigation.
