Pilot dies after small plane hits house near airport in Lloydminster, Alberta

December 14, 2013 - 3:16 PM

LLOYDMINSTER, Alta. - A pilot is dead after a small plane crashed into a house in eastern Alberta.

Transportation Safety Board spokesman John Lee says the single-engine Cessna 210 crashed on Saturday afternoon after taking off from the airport in Lloydminster.

Lee says the plane hit the ground, slid and came to rest against a house.

He says it doesn't appear that anyone who was in the house was injured.

But he says the pilot, who was the only person on board the plane, didn't survive.

Lee says safety board investigators from Edmonton will head to Lloydminster to investigate the crash.
