Four dead after a small plane crashed into a home in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, officials say

A twin-engine plane crashed into a house late Tuesday in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, killing four people — including one person inside the home — officials said.

A Mitsubishi MU-2B-60 carrying three people hit the home at 11:22 p.m. CT, Federal Aviation Administration representative Maria Njoku said Wednesday.

Police said the crash killed four people. That included a person who was inside the house when the crash happened, Hattiesburg police spokesperson Ryan Moore said.

Authorities didn’t immediately say whether all three people aboard the plane perished.

The plane had departed Wichita Falls, Texas, some 560 miles northwest of Hattiesburg, the FAA said.

Details about what led to the crash weren’t immediately available.

Representatives from the National Transportation Safety Board, which investigates aviation crashes, were headed to the scene Wednesday morning, the NTSB said.

Police asked that residents not touch or remove any debris.
