BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. - A pilot died when his small plane struck a tree when it crashed Friday in a Florida neighbourhood, authorities said.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said the Grumman American AA-5 had departed from Lantana Airport, about 3 miles (5 kilometres) north of the crash site in Palm Beach County.

The National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the cause of the crash.
