DANBURY, Conn. (WTNH) — Two people were taken to the hospital after a small plane crashed into a Danbury, Connecticut, neighborhood Monday evening, according to the Federation of Aviation Administration (FAA).
The FAA said a single-engine Cessna 152 crashed and struck a shed between two homes on Southern Boulevard just before 6 p.m.
The two people onboard the plane were taken to the hospital for minor injuries.
A representative from the Danbury Municipal Airport said the plane was from a local flight school that was practicing touch-and-go flights. The tower had just cleared the plane for landing when they lost contact with those onboard.
A neighbor who witnessed the crash told News 8 he heard a loud bang and thought a tree had fallen. They said their garage sustained some damage in the crash but everyone inside the home was OK.
