ARBIZU, Spain, May 20 (UPI) -- Three people died Thursday when a small plane crashed in a residential neighborhood in Spain after hitting a vulture, local authorities said.
Firefighters and the Civil Guard identified the victims as two men and a woman, all believed to be French, after searching the site of the crash.
The plane, a Robin DR 400 with French plates, was traveling from Portugal to France when it struck a vulture causing the pilot to lose control and crash into an alley in the town of Arbizu.
The plane initially crashed into the roof of a nearby home, before sliding through the street and hitting a parked car, a wall and a tractor.
Local government officials said none of the residents was injured, but several were treated for symptoms of shock.
