From www.Chicagodefender.com:

Chicago (IL) (AP) — A small twin-engine cargo plane crashed into a home on Chicago’s southwest side Tuesday, killing the pilot but sparing a couple who were asleep just inches away.

The Aero Commander 500-B slammed nose-down into the front of the home around 2:40 a.m., punching through the ground floor into the basement and leaving about a third of the aircraft including the tail, sticking straight out of the red-brick home.

After stabilizing the house, crews recovered the body from the wreckage. No one else was on board. The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office did not immediately release the pilot’s name.
