Plane Crash

GORDONVILLE, Texas (AP) -- Authorities say a small plane crashed into a North Texas home, leaving at least two people seriously injured.

FAA spokesman Lynn Lunsford says a Beechcraft B35 aircraft smashed the house's roof Sunday afternoon, and then landed in the yard of a home in Gordonville, about 85 miles north of Dallas.

Trooper Mark Tackett of the Texas Department of Public Safety said the engine and propeller came off the plane, which struck an unoccupied home before the plane landed in a backyard.

Lunsford says two adults and two children were injured, and were taken to Texoma Medical Center. Tackett said the pilot and one passenger had serious injuries and the other two people were not seriously hurt. No bystanders were injured.

Video posted by KXII-TV showed the plane crumpled and torn.
