Plane crashes into house in South Africa


A 30 year old pilot has been killed and a passenger injured after a light aircraft crashed into the garage wall of a house in a residential area in South Africa’s North West province, police says.

The passenger was admitted to hospital following the crash in Huhudi, a neighbourhood near the agricultural town of Vryburg, which is about 400km, 248 miles from the main city Johannesburg.

The South African Police Service SAPS said it was investigating a case of manslaughter, or culpable homicide.

The cause of the accident is still unclear.
