A small plane headed to Manassas crashed into a Herndon apartment building early Friday morning.
It happened about 12:25 a.m. at 2232 Astoria Circle near Innovation Avenue in the Dulles Green apartment complex, according to a post on the Fairfax County Fire Department's Twitter account.
The plane crashed into the third floor living room of the garden-style apartment building, displacing 20 residents, Fairfax fire officials said.
Four adults and two children were sleeping in the apartment when the single-engine Cessna crashed, Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said.
A 33-year-old woman from the apartment was taken to Inova Fairfax Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, Geller said.
The pilot, William Larson, 61, from Vienna, had serious but non-life threatening injuries and was taken to Inova Fairfax Hospital. The passenger, Tache Alejandro, from Orlando, Fla., was treated on the scene for minor injuries, according to Geller.
"Larson and Alejandro work for an aerial photography company and had been in the air taking infra-red photographs, when the plane experienced electrical problems and the engine cut off," Geller said. "Because the plane was also running low on fuel, Larson had contacted Dulles Airport to re-route its destination. Originally the plane was to land at the Manassas Regional Airport."
Manassas Regional Airport is about 30 miles from Astoria Circle.
Larson and Alejandro had taken off from Northeast Philadelphia Airport.
The National Transportation Safety Board and Federal Aviation Administration are investigating at the scene.
