Emergency officials near Midland say a small plane has crashed into a residential neighborhood, destroying one home and damaging another. The pilot was injured in the fiery accident, which happened at around 8 a.m. Friday. He was pulled from flaming wreckage of the twin-engine plane and transported to Midland Memorial Hospital. Further details on the pilot’s condition weren’t immediately available.

Midland Fire Department spokesman David Hickman says the plane crashed near the back of one house in north Midland between Big Spring and Lamesa streets, damaging a storage room and part of a garage. The plane then crossed the alley and smashed into a second house. That house caught fire and burned to the ground.

The Midland-Reporter Telegram says the 81-year old homeowner escaped injury. The plane was traveling from El Campo and was scheduled to land at Midland Airpark. Nine fire trucks and three ambulances responded to the crash, which knocked out electricity to many of the homes on the block.

This is the second plane crash in several days related to residents in this area. Two were killed when a plane from Snyder crashed over the weekend.
