May 23, 2019

According to authorities on the scene, two women aboard the plane were hurt in the accident, but no one on the ground was injured.

May 23, 2019 – 5:10 pm: Two women on a Piper-PA 28 Cherokee aircraft were injured when they crashed into a home in the Dallas area on Thursday afternoon. The women were responsive and have been hospitalized, and no one on the ground was injured.

The crash took place about a quarter mile west of the Aero Country Airport, which is located behind the home that was struck.

Homeowner Jamilah Foster said, “It felt like an explosion. I think you’d be more likely to be struck by lightning than have a plane come through your house.” She was cooking dinner when the plane hit. A mother of 3, Jamilah reported that her youngest was in the living room at the time of the crash, but luckily only sustained scratches to his legs from the flying debris.
The two women on the plane have not been publicly identified at this time. They have been hospitalized with unspecified injuries.

The cause of the crash is currently unclear. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) are both sending investigators to the site, where they will be able to determine the cause of the crash. Investigation into the event is still ongoing.
