SAN ANTONIO — Three people were killed Sunday evening when a small plane crashed onto a San Antonio street during an attempted emergency landing, authorities said.
According to KABB-TV, the deadly crash happened about 6:30 p.m. local time after the Boerne-bound plane left Sugar Land Airport. Officials said the single-engine aircraft began having engine problems, prompting the pilot to try to land at San Antonio International Airport.
San Antonio Fire Chief Charles Hood said crews arrived to find the plane "almost on the sidewalk," according to KABB. "It could have been much worse" if the plane had struck an apartment complex or U.S. 281, he added.
