Federal investigators are in Santa Monica after a small, single-engine airplane crashed into a house. The student pilot was practice landings and take offs when he over shot the runway and flew into a house a little more than a quarter mile away from the Santa Monica Airport. The Cessna 172 airplane's wings were torn off and the body of the plane was bent in two from impact.
Luckily, no one was killed and the pilot only suffered a broken leg. Three workers painting the house were able to avoid the plane and later helped the pilot get out. Investigators are now reviewing audio tapes, looking over maintenance records, and interviewing tower witnesses and the flight school operators to find out what caused the accident.
