JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Authorities say all three people aboard a plane were killed when it crashed into a house in a Jackson, Miss., neighborhood.

The Piper PA-32 single-engine plane went down Tuesday evening in a neighborhood of modest, single-family homes near Hawkins Field Airport.

Hinds County Coroner Sharon Grisham-Stewart confirmed three people died. She said dental records or DNA would be needed to confirm their identities.

A hospital spokesman says one patient from the scene was in good condition at University of Mississippi Medical Center. He would not give details citing privacy laws.

The weather in Jackson is partly cloudy in the 40s.
