Small plane crashes in Bristow backyard


BRISTOW, Va. (WUSA9) -- A small plane crashed in a backyard Sunday in Bristow, according to Prince William County fire officials.

The pilot, Karyta Barnes, 50, of Alexandria, Va. was extricated out of the plane and transported to Fairfax Inova Hospital for treatment of serious, but non-life threatening injuries, officials said. The crash happened around 9 a.m. in the 9600 block of Looking Glass Court.

At this stage of the investigation, officials say, it appears the single-engine, fixed-wing 1980 Piper PA28-161 lost power and made a crash landing into a tree in the backyard of a residence.

Officials said the plane struck some trees and fell into the backyard of a residence. No one on the ground was injured and officials say the plane did not strike any houses.
