A fatal car accident killed five young men on an airstrip located adjacent to the Florida home of John Travolta, TMZ has learned.

The five men were speeding down a runway when their car ran off an embankment and was airborne for 200 feet before smashing into a tree early this morning, the AP reports. All five men were pronounced dead at the scene.

The airstrip is located at the exclusive "fly-in" community of Jumbolair Aviation Estates, where John Travolta has a home. The map above, obtained by Ocala.com from the Marion County Property Appraiser's Office, shows how close Travolta's home is to crash scene.

Why are 19 year olds out at 3 in the morning in a brand new BMW? Very sad.

Skidmarks? The car has ABS brakes- doesn't leave skid marks. Furthermore, you don't fly 200 feet in the air AFTER losing momentum trying to stop- unless they were going over 300 mph.....

Try a little harder, FHP...... For once.....

J, when a car is sliding sideways, it leaves skidmark, you are a skidmark.

Most unfortunate for those involved however it IS the victims fault. Now look at the grief the families are left to deal with.In the blink of the eye or in a stupid moment your life can be over. That's it-lights out.It's not worth the risk.

So sad that people not knowing what Scientology is are acting like know it alls...LOL I suggest that before you judge a religion by person's comments, that you actually read up and investigate it. Scientology beliefs are pretty much the same as the Christian populace, except they actually believe in the soul and in the fact that God gave us free will and expects us to use positive thinking to help ourselves, while most Churches preach only what the minister wants you to think. It is no wonder that the professional people dislike AOL, it would seem that there are a lot of uneducated opinionated people on line. Travolta and Cruise have done more good in this world then most of you will do in your entire lifetime.

This is for the idiot who posted that the reason Heath died was because he wore clown make-up and played the Joker in the new Batman movie...What the f##k? Remember Jack Nicholson? He is still alive and kicking...
