Plane Crash in Florida Kills 3

A plane crash in Florida has killed three people. The private plane was on its way to Knoxville when it hit a house.

The crash occurred at about 2:10 p.m. in Palm Coast, Fla. Three on board died, a Florida Highway Patrol dispatcher told Knoxville News Sentinel.

The house caught on fire but the three who were inside were able to escape.

The Beechcraft BE35 aircraft reported a mechanical problem and was diverting to Flagler County Airport (originally en route to Knoxville Downtown Island Airport in Tennessee). The pilot had reported severe shaking and declared an emergency. It crashed just a mile east of the Florida airport.

The three on board were not immediately identified.
