July 13, 2019

KATY, Texas (AP) — Authorities say one person was killed when a single-engine plane crashed into a community center in Katy, Texas, just west of Houston.

Harris County Emergency Services Lt. Simon VanDyk said the plane crashed about 10:30 a.m. Saturday at the Nottingham Community Center, missing a nearby recreational center.

VanDyk said the pilot appears to have been the only person on board the aircraft and was killed.

The pilot’s name was not immediately released.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Lynn Lunsford said FAA investigators are going to the scene and the National Transportation Safety Board will lead the investigation.
