NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. - Two people aboard a plane were injured Tuesday when the aircraft crashed into a mobile home in New Smyrna Beach, officials said.

The FAA said the Piper PA-28 crashed at 10:03 a.m. while approaching Massey Ranch Airpark in Edgewater. The plane struck a home on Roberts Lane near West Park Avenue, south of U.S. 1.

The Volusia County Sheriff's Office said Amrit Ramnarine, 23 and his sister, Asha Ramnarine, 21, were hurt in the crash. No one at the home was injured.

Asha Ramnarine suffered critical injuries and was airlifted to Halifax Health Medical Center in Daytona Beach. Amrit Ramnarine suffered serious injuries and was taken to the same hospital. 

Dorothy O'Brien, who lives alone at the home, said she was taking a shower when she heard a loud noise.

She said she called 911 and reported that a plane had crashed onto her home.

"I heard this terrible, terrible noise, like a big crash," O'Brien said. "I looked out my window and I seen my carport, one of the pieces out so I called 911."

O'Brien said she's not surprised it happened since planes fly overhead all the time, arriving and departing from the nearby air park.

"You see them come over all the time but you never think it's going to happen. They're always so good about it. I pray for the two kids that were in there," O'Brien said.

Video from Sky 6 showed the wing of the plane resting on the edge of the carport.
