(GREENSBURG) - The National Transportation Safety Board released a preliminary report Wednesday into the investigation of the fatal Greensburg crash that killed four people.

The report said the Piper 46 crashed while trying to land at the Greensburg Municipal Airport.

According to the report, the instruments in the pilot's aircraft advised him to divert to the Columbus Airport and that air traffic controllers in Indianapolis spoke with the pilot when he was just four miles away from his scheduled landing.

The weather was foggy and misty, and the lights on the runway were functioning properly, and the plane and engine were in working order NTSB officials said.

Investigators also said they recovered three personal data devices. The devices were sent to a lab in Washington, D.C. The contents of the devices could be released in the final report, officials said.
