Plane Crash: A plane that crashed into residential backyards moved away from the crash site in southwest Houston

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — Residents are now seeing the aftermath of the damage left in their backyards by a small plane crash on Friday.

Federal investigators have removed the wreckage of the plane that crashed near Hobby Airport on the edge of Dobie High School’s 9th grade center campus.

It has been moved to a safe location if investigators need to examine or remove a component, according to the National Transportation Safety Board. The cause of the crash is under further investigation.

“It could have been much worse,” said neighbor Javier Castillo. “If anything, that plane would have gone into that house. It was just this close to hitting it. Simply happier than anything it narrowly missed. Just a crazy experience.”

The Cessna 421 took off from Hobby Airport for San Antonio on Friday afternoon.

Within minutes, the pilot reported engine failure and skidded for a landing on the campus field that belonged to Dobie High School’s 9th grade center.

A small fire started, but all four people said to be on board made it safely off the plane.

There were no reported injuries to anyone on the ground near the crash.

“It’s a cool story, like those emergency landings on YouTube and stuff like that. It happened here,” Castillo said.
