Small plane crashes into San Jose home; 3 hurt
« on: November 20, 2017, 06:15:02 AM »

A small airplane carrying a flight instructor and a student crashed into a house in a residential neighborhood in San Jose on Sunday afternoon, injuring all three people aboard the aircraft.
The Cessna 172 airplane crashed into a garage on the 2100 block of Evelyn Avenue in East San Jose at about 3 p.m. All three passengers were transported to a hospital.
Nobody in the house was injured, although several residents were home in the back of the house when the accident occurred. The garage the plane smashed into had been converted into a residential space, but nobody was there at the time.

The accident took place close to the Reid-Hillview Airport, where the plane had been rented earlier that afternoon. The owner of the plane was on site Sunday evening and arranging to remove the aircraft.
preliminary reports indicate that no one was killed and no one hurt on the ground,” said Freitas. “We don’t know the condition of the passengers but hope their injuries are not severe.”
