Small plane crashes into New Braunfels house, no injuries


NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas (AP) - A small single-seat airplane has crashed into a South Central Texas home but authorities say the pilot and four people inside the home have escaped without injury.

New Braunfels police say the 67-year-old pilot, identified only as a Converse man, says the plane lost power late Sunday morning and he tried to land in a vacant field. The aircraft clipped some power lines and flipped, coming to rest on a carport attached to a home.

A small fuel leak was contained by firefighters.

New Braunfels is about 30 miles northeast of San Antonio.
