POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. – At least one person was killed and another was unaccounted for Saturday after a plane crashed into a house in New York, authorities say.

According to state police, the plane carrying three people crashed into a home on South Smith Street in Union Vale, near Poughkeepsie, just after 4 p.m. Two people on board survived.

Three people were inside the home. One suffered life-threatening injuries, police said, and one is unaccounted for. Nobody involved in the crash was identified by police Saturday.

The home was fully engulfed in flames after the crash, police said. Smoke was visible coming from the area of the residence, though the home was not visible from beyond the perimeter established by law enforcement and fire officials.

The plane was a twin-engine Cessna 303 model, according to the National Transportation Safety Board, which is investigating the crash.

It was headed to Sky Acres Airport in LaGrangeville, less than a mile from the crash location, according to the Federal Aviation Administration. It had taken off from Farmingdale at Republic Airport.

The house is located in a rural residential area.

Sky Acres Airport is a privately-owned, public access airport.

The airport’s website lists it as “an ideal landing site and stopover for travelers visiting the Hudson Valley and New England areas.”

Republic Airport, located in East Farmingdale on Long Island, is a general aviation airport “that supports recreation and business flying, but not commercial,” according to its website.
