2 killed, one is hurt when airplane hits power lines

SPRING, Texas (AP) — A small plane struck power lines and crashed into two cars as it tried to land Sunday, killing two aboard the aircraft and injuring one person in a car, authorities said.

The plane was headed to David Wayne Hooks Airport, just northeast of Houston, said Roland Herwig, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration.

Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman Tom Vinger said the two people on the plane were a man and a boy.

KTRK-TV in Houston reported that a woman in the car was treated for minor injuries.
