(The Washington Post) – Investigators combed through wreckage Tuesday in a Gaithersburg neighborhood where a small plane crashed into a home, killing six people, including a mother who was trying to shield her two young children.

Officials from the National Transportation Safety Board and fire and police authorities from Montgomery County are expected to talk to witnesses and sort through the scene Tuesday to try to figure out what caused a small jet plane — Embraer EMB-500/Phenom 100 — traveling from North Carolina to tumble into 19733 Drop Forge Lane and hit two other houses on the street.

The pilot, two passengers, the mother, Marie Gemmell, 36, and two of her children — 3-year-old Cole and 6-week-old Devon — were killed. Michael Rosenberg was flying the plane. The names of the two passengers were not immediately released.

By mid-day on Tuesday, a Web page for the family of the mother had already raised over $152,000. The site tells of how Gemmell ‘s husband Ken and the couple’s oldest child were the only survivors of the family.
