Body

The pilot of a single-engine plane is dead after crashing into a home on Inwood Court in Cannon Creek Airpark Saturday morning. The occupants of the home, a woman and her son, were unhurt.

The pilot has not been identified, according to county fire chief Jeff Crawford, who said the plane was so badly damaged it cannot be determined whether it is locally-based.

The crash occurred shortly before 10 a.m., officials said.

Crawford said the National Transportation Safety Board, state fire marshal and Florida Highway Patrol had been notified. FHP will be part of the investigation since the wreckage partly littered a public road.

More to come.
