Military aircraft crashes into Texas residential area By Reuters


(Reuters) – A military training aircraft crashed on Sunday in a residential neighborhood of Lake Worth, Texas, injuring at least two and damaging homes, authorities said.

Ryan Arthur (chief of Lake Worth’s fire department) said the two pilots from the aircraft were treated at a hospital after they ejected. Lake Worth can be found in North Texas’s Forth Worth metro area.

According to police, one pilot’s parachutes got caught up in powerlines.

Arthur reported that the incident caused damage to three houses but did not result in any injuries.

Arthur stated that “this incident could have been even worse, given the fact that it crashed in a residential area.”
