Two people were taken to the hospital after a small plane in which they were flying crashed in McKinney on Thursday evening.

The plane crashed into a house on Black Bear Drive, according to the McKinney Fire Department. No one on the ground was injured.

Firefighters responded to the scene at about 5:50 p.m. Thursday.

A spokeswoman for the Federal Aviation Administration told the Associated Press the single-engine Piper PA-28 Cherokee crashed a quarter-mile from Aero Country Airport, near the northern Dallas suburb. Spokeswoman Elizabeth Cory said it was unclear if the plane was taking off or approaching the airfield when it crashed.

Jamillah Foster was inside the house when the plane crashed into the front of her house. She told the AP no one in the house or outside on the ground was injured.

The plane’s occupants were taken to a hospital. Their identities and conditions are not known, but Foster said both appeared to be alert.
