HOWELL TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Authorities say a single-engine plane crashed into a house near a southeastern Michigan air field, killing both people aboard. No injuries are reported on the ground.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Tony Molinaro said the crash happened about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday as the plane tried to land at Livingston County Airport in Howell Township.
The airport is about 45 miles west-northwest of Detroit.
Molinaro says the plane was a Thorp T18. He didn't immediately have information on the plane's itinerary.
The FAA is sending inspectors to the scene of the accident. Molinaro says the National Transportation Safety Board will lead the investigation.
Sheriff Bob Bezotte tells the Livingston County Daily Press & Argus that both victims were men. He says state police and the Howell Area Fire Authority aided emergency efforts.
