According to a report from ABC7, a small passenger plane crashed into a Groton, Connecticut, home while en route to a local airport Monday night. Fortunately, the pilot and a passenger on board as well as a man inside the house escaped serious jury.
The plane crashed into the roof of the house at about 10:30 p.m., about two miles from Groton-New London Airport.
The pilot and passenger made it out of the wreckage under their own power and were taken to Lawrence + Memorial Hospital in New London. Their names and conditions have not been released, but officials indicated that their injuries were non-life-threatening.
The crash did not cause a fire, but neighboring homes were evacuated as a precaution. The impact destroyed part of the single-story home’s roof, where the plane remained Tuesday morning as local officials waited for National Transportation Safety Board investigators to arrive on scene.
