    ‘They are so fortunate in this case that the plane did not crash through the home and injure them, so we’re saying that they’re very lucky,’ Placer County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Angela Musallam said of the incident Wednesday afternoon.

    ‘We actually don’t know the condition of the pilot.

    The sheriff’s office added that they were initially alerted to the incident after their office received a call from an unnamed witness about what the office called a ‘suspicious circumstance.

    ‘Around 3pm, PCSO received a call of suspicious circumstances on the 3000 block of Miracle Drive, in Auburn. Deputies arrived and found a plane had crashed on top of a home,’ the office tweeted Wednesday following the crash.








    Upon arriving at the scene and discovering the crashed aircraft, deputies eventually discerned the pilot accidentally clipped some nearby power lines and trees directly before the crash, leading to the rough landing in the occupied home’s roof, which somehow did not collapse.

    The office added that CAL FIRE Nevada-Yuba-Placer Unit agents then ‘rendered medical aid to the sole pilot before they were transported to a nearby hospital.

    The home is situated just a few miles from Auburn’s Municipal Airport, but police say that the pilot’s destination is still currently unclear.

    ‘We do not know where this plane was heading, where this plane was coming from,’ Musallam said after the crash.

    The office did not disclose the identity of the owners of the house, nor how many people were inside the property at the time of the crash.

    Photos and video footage from the scene of the crash shows a mound of wreckage sitting atop the roof of the house, with parts pf the debris dangling over the side of the damaged domicile.

    Deputies remained at the scene Wednesday until agents from the Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board arrived to investigate the wreck.

    The two organizations are now overseeing the investigation.
