SAN ANTONIO (UPI) — One person died and two were hospitalized with injuries after a plane crashed in a residential neighborhood in San Antonio on Saturday.
The crash took place in a residential area after strong winds caused the plane, a Piper PA-28, to go into a tailspin and plummet into a backyard, San Antonio Fire Department spokesman Woody Woodward said.
Firefighters extinguished a small fire that broke out after the crash, but no structures were damaged.
Officials have not released any information about the victims.
According to Woodward, the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the case.
