HERNDON, Va. (AP) — Authorities say two people suffered minor injuries when a small plane crashed into the living room of an apartment in Herndon.

Capt. Willie Bailey with Fairfax County Fire and Rescue says the plane ran out of fuel early Friday and crashed, injuring two people — one in the apartment and one in the Cessna 177B. The plane was headed from the Philadelphia area to Manassas Regional Airport.

David Ventura, who lives in the apartment, tells WRC-TV that he was awakened by the sound of the crash and shocked to discover a plane and two strangers in his living room.

The Red Cross is helping nine adults, seven children and three pets who had to leave the building.
