FAA investigating after plane crashes in backyard of NJ home

A plane that crashed into the backyard of a New Jersey home is being removed.

Construction crews were on hand to remove the small plane from the backyard of the Lindenwold home.

Officials said the plane appeared to come between four homes on a diagonal, striking some trees before ending up on the ground.

Hazardous material crews were also on hand to clean up a fuel leak.

Officials said the vintage two-seater plane crashed Wednesday after experiencing an “unknown mechanical issue.”

Two people were onboard at the time of the crash and both were transported to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The FAA is now investigating.
