Plane crashes into houses in Sioux Falls

SIOUX FALLS, South Dakota — A plane crashed between two homes in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Tuesday, leaving one person dead.

Sioux Falls Emergency Manager Regan Smith tells KELO-TV the crash took place around 5 p.m. CT. The person who died was a passenger on the plane, Smith said during a press conference Tuesday night.

Four homes were affected by the plane crash, Smith said, two of which sustained heavy damage. The Red Cross had been contacted Tuesday evening about possibly sheltering the families of those two homes.

The Sioux Falls Police Department continues to search the scene, Smith said.

“We’re still investigating, there may be more fatalities to come,” Smith said.

Investigators with the National Transportation Safety Board are expected at the site on Wednesday.
