SAVANNAH, Ga. — Moments after a military cargo plane crashed into a Georgia highway, rattled motorists began dialing 911 to report the large aircraft plunged nose-first into the blacktop before erupting into flames and thick smoke.

The military is investigating. So far, investigators have released no preliminary findings to suggest what caused the crash.

An Air Force spokesman, Maj. Andrew Reed, declined to comment Monday on any details from the 911 calls, citing the active investigation.

Other witnesses gave similar eyewitness accounts.

"It just literally nose-dived into the road," said one 911 caller.

"He did a barrel roll and went straight into the ground," said another.

A woman who described black smoke bellowing from the crash tried to get a closer look so she could give emergency dispatchers a better idea of exactly where the plane hit.

"I'm coming up on it," the woman says. "It's right off the railroad track. Oh my God, it's on Highway 21... It's across both lanes of road."

"Is it on fire or anything like that?" the operator asks.

"Yes, baby, it's black smoke," the caller replies. "The plane like incinerated whenever it hit the concrete."
