MIDDLESEX, Va. (AP) — Authorities say a small plane crashed into a home in Virginia and the three people on board survived with minor injuries.

No one was home at the time of the crash. Middlesex County Sheriff David Bushey tells WWBT the single-engine plane took off just before 9 a.m. Saturday from an airport in Topping, about an hour east of Richmond. Two adults and a juvenile were on board.

A photo of the scene showed extensive damage.
