COMPTON CA — On West Cypress Street, a twin-engine Cessna 310 collided with three homes. Five individuals were injured, including the pilot, two passengers and two on the ground. All five victims were taken to area hospitals and are expected to survive.

The crash occurred after the plane experienced complications and losing power. The cause has not yet been determined.

After clipping a house, the right wing detached, then the craft cartwheeled down the street over a second home and landed nose down through the roof of a third house.

One of the homeowners was at home washing dishes at the time of the crash and sustained a fractured jaw and broken bones. The plane’s passengers are in critical condition, and the pilot can’t give an accounting. The cause is under investigation by the FAA and NTSB, with both reports expected by December 2008.
