Small plane crashes into home near Fort Lauderdale

A plane crashed into an Oakland Park, Fla., home Friday after taking off from the Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport, USA Today reported.

At least one person aboard the plane died in the crash, Broward County Sheriff's spokesman Jim Leljedal told the Miami Herald. It is believed that the pilot was the only person aboard the plane when it crashed.

After the plane, an eight-passenger Cessna 421, crashed into the house, it exploded, the Miami Herald reported. The tenants of the house weren't home at the time, neighbors told the Miami Herald.

The plane was going to Fernandina Beach, Fla., but shortly after takeoff reported trouble and was going to turn around and land, USA Today reported. Before it could, it crashed.
