2 on Plane Killed When Aircraft Hits North Carolina Home, FAA Says

Federal authorities say two people are dead after their plane crashed into a house in central North Carolina.

HIGH POINT, N.C. -- Federal authorities say two people are dead after their plane crashed into a house in central North Carolina.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen says both people aboard the small aircraft were killed Wednesday when the plane crashed into a house in High Point. She says the plane was flying from Wilmington to Winston-Salem but was diverted to Greensboro because of bad weather.

Bergen says the plane crashed short of the runway at Piedmont Triad International Airport and hit a house, which witnesses said caught fire.

Neighbors tell The Associated Press that the plane hit the back of the house and its residents then escaped through the front.
