Accidental? Not far from Fort Hood? CNN seems to have made it a mere sidenote that the FBI is housed in this complex, which doesn't seem such a sidenote to me.A small single-engine plane crashed into a building in Northwest Austin Thursday morning, sparking a fire.
The crash happened near MoPac and Highway 183.
Smoke could be scene pouring from the a building in the Echelon complex on traffic cameras and in photosgraphs send in by KVUE viewers and reporters.
KVUE’s Noelle Newton reports most of the windows are blown out. People were evacuated. There is so far no word on how many people have been injured. A witness told KVUE that it didn't appear the plane was having any trouble before it crashed.
Firefighters say they have made several rescues, but so far two people are unaccounted for.
Officials say an FBI field office is housed in the complex, but it was not hit. They say this appears to be accidental.
