Plane Crashes in Front Yard, Two Dead in Polk County


BARTOW -- Two people died when a single-engine plane crashed in the front yard of a house on the 4600 block of Weston Road in Bartow Thursday morning.

The crash site is just northeast of Bartow executive airport.

No residents of the house or nearby were hurt. The victims have not yet been identified.

The FAA and NTSB will be investigating the crash. A federal statement identifies the location as "Eagle Lake FL." It's not an Eagle Lake address but Eagle Lake is just a few miles up the road.
