Small plane crashes at Fort Lauderdale parking lot
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — A small plane crashed Friday afternoon into a parking lot near a South Florida airport.
Television news footage shows that the plane crashed on the side of a building and came down at a parking lot near the Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport.
Fort Lauderdale fire rescue crews were responding. Emergency officials didn't immediately return calls for comment.
It wasn't immediately clear how many people were in the plane or if anyone on the ground was injured.
A storage facility and an indoor go-kart track are among the businesses listed nearby.
The airport serves smaller planes rather than the larger commercial flights at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.
The crash happened at the start of rush hour alongside Interstate 95, the major north-south route along Florida's Atlantic coast.
