Federal investigators say a plane crash in Mississippi that killed three members of a Georgia family in 2012 came during a severe thunderstorm.
The July 8, 2012, crash near New Site in north Mississippi killed James Bartley Jr.; his wife, Terry Bartley; and their youngest daughter, Caroline Bartley. Bartley had a podiatry practice in Columbus, Ga.
The family was flying from their vacation home in the North Carolina mountains to the University of Mississippi, where Caroline Bartley was a student.
The National Transportation Safety Board released a factual report on the accident this past week. The report notes that severe thunderstorms were located in the flight path filed by Bartley.
The NTSB says Bartley acknowledged the weather buildup in communication with air traffic controllers in Memphis, Tenn.
