Three people aboard a single-engine plane were killed on Sunday evening, when the aircraft crashed into a home. According to local reports, the plane had taken off from Lancaster, Pennsylvania and was en route to Norwood, Massachusetts when it crashed. The crash occurred in Plainville, Mass, not far from the airport the aircraft was destined for.
According to local reports, it was not immediately clear if the family that occupied the home were inside at the time and able to escape, or if they were out at the time of the incident. The occupants of the home, however, have been accounted for.
The NTSB is on scene and investigating the incident. The three people who were killed were on board the plane. According to official reports two adults and one child were on-board at the time of the incident. The names of the victims have not yet been released.
The crash comes just days after another single-engine plane crash in California. That crash took the life of Oscar-winning composer, James Horner.
