The former president of an Atlanta synagogue was one of two people killed in an airplane crash in a city neighborhood.

Peter Mallen, 67, the founder of a high-tech textile company and president of The Temple in Atlanta from 2004 to 2006, was piloting the plane when it went down in a northwestern neighborhood of Atlanta and exploded into flames last week near Interstate 285, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported.

Officials say they are investigating and do not know the cause of the crash, which also killed a 26-year-old Emory University graduate.

The Jewish Daily Forward said Mallen was a married father of four.

According to the report, it was Mallen’s second plane crash.
