A small plane crashed on a residential street in New Jersey on Monday afternoon.

The plane crashed around 1 p.m. into a yard in Manville, near Central Jersey Regional Airport, the Federal Aviation Administration said. Power lines on the street were damaged in the crash.

A parked car appeared to have been seriously damaged by the plane, too, according to NBC 4.

The FAA said it wasn’t immediately clear how many people were aboard the single-engine plane, a Mooney M20M. The cause of the crash was also unclear as the FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board began a joint investigation. However, the Manville police later said the pilot—who was injured—was the only person aboard.

They suffered facial injuries and were taken to a hospital for treatment, according to ABC 7. They are expected to recover.

The plane was en route to the New Jersey airport from a small airport in Greensboro, N.C.
