Authorities have identified an Augusta surgeon as being among five people killed in the crash of a private jet in eastern Georgia.

McDuffie County Coroner Foster Wiley said Thursday that Dr. Steven Roth, a vascular surgeon who worked for a medical practice called the Vein Guys, died in the crash Wednesday.

Two of Roth's co-workers -- Lisa Volpitto and Kim Davidson -- were also identified among the dead. Dr. Stephen Davis of the practice's clinic in Nashville, Tenn., says Volpitto was a nurse anesthetist and Davidson worked as a secretary.

The coroner says two others who died have not yet been identified.

Investigators say the jet aborted its landing and struck a 60-foot utility pole.
