No one was home at the time of the crash. Middlesex County Sheriff David Bushey tells WWBT the single-engine plane took off just before 9 a.m. Saturday from an airport in Topping, about an hour east of Richmond. Two adults and a juvenile were on board.
The station reports the pilot lost control, flew between two trees, and crashed into the home in Middlesex County.
A photo of the scene showed extensive damage.
Bushey says the people on board the plane were taken to a hospital and have since been released.
