Survivor of the plane crash was noted NASCAR driver and auto racing analyst Dale Earnhardt Jr.
He was with his wife when their private jet in eastern Tennessee crashed.
Elizabethon Fire Chief Barry Carrier said they were just two of Amy's wife when the plane crashed at Elizabethon Municipal Airport.
During the investigation, the pilot suddenly lost control and the plane went off the runway.
The plane was immediately released before the Cessna Citation burned down.
Authorities immediately stopped the operation of the airport.
In 2017, 44-year-old Earnhardt met the most popular driver he had owned in 15 years.
