In an incident near Washington, D.C., Sunday, a small plane plunged into high-voltage power lines, causing a massive power outage while rescue services worked into the night to free passengers.
Reuters quotes the Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service as saying the plane crashed around 5:30 pm local time (2230 GMT) in foggy and wet weather in Montgomery.
According to Washington-area utility Pipco, between 85,000 and 90,000 people were without power due to the plane's fall on wires.
Many traffic lights in the area were without power, and roads were closed.
Although the fire chief later refused to confirm the number of passengers, firefighters initially said two were alive but trapped inside the plane.
