A man has died after a small plane crashed into a home near the College Park Airport in Prince George’s County, Maryland, Sunday afternoon, fire officials say.
The Grunman American AA-5A struck a carport attached to a house and a parked car before catching fire just before 3 p.m., said Mark Brady, spokesperson for the Prince George’s County Fire Department. Brady said the car and part of the house also caught fire.
Firefighters found one man dead inside the plane. No one was at the home at the time of the crash and there appear to be no other injuries, Brady said.
