Shortly after 1 p.m. Tuesday, when many residents at the Briarcliffe RV Resort were watching TV or cleaning up, their day was upended by a loud roar, a series of explosions and a fire ball as a small plane crashed into one of the trailers.

The plane’s pilot and a woman in a trailer were killed in the crash, according to officials. The plane hit a tree before crashing into the front end of the woman’s trailer, then hitting a truck and going across the small street. A man who was in the trailer with the woman survived.

Vern Rogers and his wife, Pam, were eating lunch in their mobile home parked four spaces away when suddenly they heard a loud plane, a brief pause and then an explosion.

They said they ran outside and saw a ball of flames.
