A plane crashed into two homes in Greenwood this afternoon and one person is dead, Mayor Mark Myers said.
At least three other people were injured in the accident, which happened at 2:19 p.m. on Patterson Street, which is just off Main Street across from the Valle Vista Golf Course. The Greenwood Municipal Airport is just north of the crash site.
The plane hit two homes in the first block of Patterson Street shortly after taking off from the airport, Mayor Mark Myers said. The aircraft had lost power during takeoff and witnesses at the airport saw it go down.
