HERNDON, Va. (AP) - Virginia State Police say two people were taken to a hospital after a two-seat plane crashed into the living room of a third-story apartment outside Washington.
Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller says the plane crashed into the roof of the apartment building in Herndon, Va., early Friday after it had electrical problems and its engine cut off.
Geller says the men were taking infrared photographs for an aerial photography company. They were headed to Manassas from Philadelphia, but rerouted to Dulles when they ran low on fuel.
Geller says the pilot was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. A woman who was in the apartment was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The Red Cross is helping nine adults, seven children and pets who had to leave the building.
