Two dead after small plane crashes on Detroit's east side
Two people died and one person was injured when a small plane crashed in a neighborhood on Detroit's east side Sunday.
The 17-year-old survivor is in critical condition at Detroit Receiving Hospital.
The plane was on fire when a resident broke a window with an ax and pulled him out.
Authorities say the single-engine plane apparently hit a power line and a tree before crashing into a vacant lot about a mile from the Coleman A. Young International Airport.
According to the Federal Aviation Administration, the pilot reported landing gear problems and low fuel shortly before the crash.
