ALABASTER, Ala. (AP) - Federal authorities say a small airplane has crashed into a residential area in Alabaster.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said in an email that the single-engine Bellanca aircraft crashed around 2 p.m. Wednesday.

Bergen says preliminary information indicates only the pilot was on board. ABC 33/40 reports that police say the pilot was taken to a hospital.

Bergen says no injuries were reported to people on the ground.

The FAA is investigating, and the National Transportation Safety Board will determine probable cause.
