Authorities say three people suffered minor injuries when a small plane crashed into the living room of an apartment in Herndon.
Capt. Willie Bailey with Fairfax County Fire and Rescue says the plane was headed from the Philadelphia area to Manassas Regional Airport early Friday when it ran out of fuel and crashed. Officials say three people – two in the apartment and one in the Cessna 177B – had minor injuries. The Red Cross is helping nine adults, seven children and three pets who had to leave the building.
The two-passenger plane crashed into a three-story apartment building in the 2200 block of Astoria Circle at around 12:30 Friday morning, authorities say.
The two people in the plane and one person in the building were taken to the hospital with minor injuries. Nine adults, seven children and three pets were evacuated from the building. Sources say that the plane was on its way to Manassas airport from Philadelphia and ran out of fuel. The Cessna tried to land in Dulles, but did not make it and crashed into the apartment building. When the plane crashed into one of the apartment buildings, the pilot stumbled out of the plane and told one of the residents, “I think we hit your apartment.” About 20 people have been evacuated from the building, while cranes are beginning the long process of stabilizing the structure and removing the lodged plane.
