An NTSB preliminary report could be completed by the end of next week on a plane crash that killed Jesup businessman Rick Poppell.

They're still not sure why his plane went down shortly after takeoff from Valdosta. An autopsy report determined that Poppell died from multiple blunt force injuries. His death is being ruled accidental.

His visitation is 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday at the Jesup Church of God. The funeral is Sunday at 2 p.m. also at the Jesup Church of God.
