Both pilots managed to eject, but the parachute of one of them caught on the power lines.

A military training aircraft crashed on Sunday in a residential neighborhood of Lake Worth, Texas, injuring at least two and damaging homes, authorities said.

The aircraft’s two pilots were hospitalized after ejecting from the plane, according to Ryan Arthur, chief of Lake Worth’s fire department. Lake Worth is located in the Forth Worth metropolitan area in North Texas.

One of the pilot’s parachutes became entangled in power lines, police said.

Three homes were damaged but no residents were injured, Arthur said.

“This incident could have been much worse given that this plane went down in a residential area,” Arthur told a news conference.

As a result of the accident, electricity was cut off in 44 houses in the area, added Artur.

The agency clarified that two of the plane’s pilots were hospitalized after the bailout.

According to the agency, the parachute of one of the pilots caught on the power lines.

It is known that the state of emergency happened in the town of Lake Worth, which adjoins Fort Worth and together with it forms the western suburb of Dallas. Fort Worth is home to the US Naval Air Force Base.
