Terrifying surveillance video captured the moment a military cargo plane nose-dived into a busy Georgia highway on Tuesday after stalling in the air not long after it had taken off.

The C-130 Hercules cargo plane crashed Wednesday at the intersection of Highway 21 and Crossgate Road at 11.30am on Wednesday morning.

It did not strike any cars on the road which, authorities say, is a 'miracle' given the time of day.

The plane belongs to the 156th Airlift Wing which is based at Muñiz Air National Guard Base, in Carolina, Puerto Rico. It had just taken off from Hilton Head International Airport in Savannah when it crashed.

The National Guard said at first there were five people onboard at the time. Local Georgia station WTOC cites sources who claimed there were nine people on the aircraft.

It was carrying out a training mission and was on its way to Tucson, Arizona, when it went down. The cause of the crash is not yet known but witnesses said it appeared to stall in the air.

The crash was captured on the surveillance cameras from a nearby business. The business owner shared it online afterwards.
