Girl hurt as ultra-light hits Genesee County house

ATLAS TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities in Genesee County say an ultra-light plane crashed into a house, injuring a young girl on board.

The accident happened about 3 p.m. Saturday in Atlas Township. The site is on the shore of Shinanguag Lake, about 10 miles southeast of Flint.

The girl and a man believed to be her grandfather were aboard the plan. It says the man was unhurt, but the girl was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Charmaine Kerchner owns the house the plane hit.

She says she and her husband Bob were sitting in their sun room and saw the plane coming toward the house. She says her husband was cut and the crash damages their house, but it's all fixable.
