Small Plane Hits Cars, Crash-Lands on Street in Arizona

A two-engine plane with two people aboard crash-landed on a Phoenix, Arizona street, Wednesday, December 11, while on final approach to a nearby airport after the pilot declared an emergency, authorities said.

Fire Captain Nicole Minnick said there were no injuries and that both people in the plane initially declined treatment before one requested transport to a hospital for further evaluation.

The plane’s fuselage ended up on the street pavement with one wing broken off. Several nearby parked cars were badly damaged.

There was no immediate indication as to what caused the crash, but FAA spokesman Allen Kenitzer said the plane was headed for nearby Deer Valley Airport when the pilot declared an emergency. Kenetizer said the FAA would investigate. (AP)
