According to an FAA spokesman, the accident happened around 7:20 a.m. on Mountain View Boulevard shortly after takeoff from Big Bear Airport, says KTLA. The pilot was reportedly able "to extract himself" from the aircraft and was taken to an local hospital with unknown injuries. A person inside the house was also hurt. The incident is now under investigation by the NTSB and FAA and authorities have not yet released the names of the involved parties. The plane, according to FAA records, is reportedly registered to Tower General Contractors in Sun Valley.
