McKinney Family Not Sure When They’ll Be Able To Return Home After Damage Caused By Small Plane Crash
McKINNEY, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – A small plane crashed into the back of a house in the 200 block of Black Bear Drive in McKinney Thursday afternoon.
Two people on the plane were rushed to the hospital.
The McKinney Fire Department said no one on the ground was hurt, but the home suffered serious damage.
The FAA said the plane is Piper PA 28.
It crashed about a quarter mile west of the Aero Country Airport.
Homeowner Jamillah Foster told CBS 11, the plane came within about ten feet of her 1-year-old son when it crashed through the back of their home.
“I was scared. I mean immediately I didn’t know what happened,” said Foster. “I thought it was some kind of explosion. It was just so loud.”
Foster said she rushed to her living room to see the wreckage.
She said she immediately thought, ‘Where are my three children?’
“I was in a full blown panic. I felt like I was having panic attacks,” she said. “Thank God the baby was fine, he cried a little bit. I just snatched him up and was looking for the three year old.”
Her two other children were fine.
This family said they’ve been told they can’t stay here right now, but the Red Cross is helping them to figure out their next move.
