LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. -- Two people suffered non-life-threatening injuries after a small plane crashed into a Lawrenceville backyard on Tuesday.
The incident happened in the 1600 block Amhearst Mill Drive. According to FAA spokesperson Kathleen Bergen, the pilot was practicing takeoffs and landings in a single propeller plane when the accident occurred.
Gwinnett fire officials said the Piper PA 28 aircraft went down in the backyard of a private residence. Josh Frazier, his wife Crystal and two daughters were inside the home when it happened. He went outside and found a wing of the plane lying on the side of his house.
"My daughter's bedroom is right there," Frazier said. "The wing could have easily landed in her room while she was asleep."
