A high school teacher from east Georgia was among three people killed in a plane crash Saturday off Long Island, N.Y.

The twin-engine Piper PA-34 was headed to Charleston, S.C., from Connecticut when it crashed south of Quogue, N.Y., in the Hamptons.

Another victim was identified as 41-year-old plane owner and flight instructor Munidat "Raj" Persaud, of Waterbury, Conn., according to The Associated Press.

Richard. P. Terbrusch, 53, of Ridgefield, Conn., an attorney, was the third person on the plane, according to the Post and Courier of Charleston.S.C.
