Plane Crashes into Mobile Home, Killing Pilot and Sleeping Woman

A Piper Cherokee struck a mobile home in Lake Worth, Florida, on Tuesday evening, killing the pilot and a young woman sleeping inside the trailer.

Footage from nearby surveillance shows the plane in a steep bank, its wings almost vertical, before it dives into the mobile home. Flames engulfed the plane and the trailer, where 21-year-old Banny Galicia was sleeping at the time of the accident.

The pilot, Dan Shalloway, 64, was traveling from Orlando to Lantana at the time of the accident. There is no record of distress calls before the crash.
