ALABASTER, AL (WBRC) -

A small plane that crashed into an Alabaster backyard has been removed.

FOX6 News is told by some of the people at the scene that the plane was transported to the Bessemer Airport.

The craft hit a tree before landing on top of a van in the backyard of a home on 10th Street Southwest Wednesday. The pilot of the craft was taken to UAB to be treated for minor injuries. The Federal Aviation Administration visited the scene this week as part of the investigation.

Homeowner Maddison McBride said Wednesday it was a "blessing that everbody's OK."

Nic Fisher says that he and his mother saw the crash happen and that they ran to the scene before EMS were able to arrive.

"When [the pilot] crashed we ran over there," Fisher said. "And then we had him out...he had a bump on his head."

Other neighbors who spoke with FOX6 News report hearing a loud boom at the time of the crash.

Fisher says that the pilot told him the fuel injector in the plane may have failed though an official cause of the crash is still unknown.
