Richmond Times-Dispatch Weekend - - METRO2 -

One per­son died Satur­day in a small plane crash in the Shenan­doah Val­ley, and three oth­ers sur­vived a Mid­dle­sex County crash that sent a small plane div­ing into a home.

State po­lice spokes­woman Corinne Geller said in a state­ment that the fa­tal crash oc­curred around 1: 40 p. m. in War­ren County. The pri­vate air­craft went down near the Front Royal air- port and caught fire.

Geller said the Fed­eral Avi­a­tion Agency and the Na­tional Trans­porta­tion Safety Board have been no­ti­fied and that the crash re­mains un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

The per­son killed was not im­me­di­ately iden­ti­fied, and no fur­ther de­tails were re­leased.

Mean­while, Mid­dle­sex Sher­iff David Bushey said a sin­gle- engine plane crashed af­ter tak­ing off about 9 a. m. from an air­port in Top­ping, about an hour east of Rich­mond.

Two adults and a ju­ve­nile were on board.

The pi­lot lost con­trol, flew be­tween two trees and crashed into the home.

No one was home at the time of the crash, but a photo of the scene showed ex­ten­sive dam­age to the build­ing.

Bushey said the peo­ple on the plane were taken to a hos­pi­tal and have since been re­leased.
