At least two people were injured and two houses were damaged after a military plane crashed in the Lake Worth neighborhood Sunday morning, authorities said.
According to Fort Worth police and firefighters, two or three people were being treated for injuries and two homes were “severely damaged” in the 2000 block of Texas Trail.
One person is in critical condition and was taken to Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas. The second person was taken to Texas Health Methodist Harris Hospital in Fort Worth, according to MedStar.
Witnesses told NBC5 that there were two people who appeared to have been ejected from the aircraft and that one of them was seriously injured after becoming entangled in electrical wiring.
“I was in my car in [State Highway] 199 right in front of the donut shop when the pilot landed on the power lines, “Cara Camp told NBC 5.” As I was driving, I heard a loud explosion and debris hit the car. “
Kaitlyn Deramus lives on the Texas Trail and told NBC5 that she saw two people get off the plane and then the crash. He said he ran to help his neighbors, one of whom is paralyzed, because he knew they would need help getting out.
“I knew there were old ladies in that house where it happened and it was knocking on their door, but they didn’t come out because they thought it was just a car, so I took them out,” Deramus said. “In the house behind, I ran to the next street and took that lady out of that house because she is paralyzed and needed to get out.”
“I have anxiety, but all I wanted to do was save those old ladies because I’ve known them since I was very, very little,” Deramus said. “They are well physically.”
The plane went down in a neighborhood about a mile north of the Naval Air Station Fort Worth Joint Reserve Base, although it is unclear where the plane is located.
