A small plane crashed into a parking lot in Pacoima this morning, according to fire department officials.

The single-engine plane crashed happened just before noon today, the Los Angeles Fire Department tweeted. The plane avoided any buildings and it didn't catch on fire, but it may have hit some parked cars. The two occupants aboard the plane survived the crash-landing, though they have some moderate injuries.

The crash happened at the intersection of Van Nuys Boulevard and San Fernando Road, just one block from Whiteman Municipal Airport, KTLA reported.
