One person died and another was hurt when a Maule M-5 crashed into a house in the 23000 block of NE 144th St. in Woodinville on Saturday afternoon.

Deputy Charlie Akers with the King County Sheriff's Office said witnesses reported hearing a plane sputtering.

When they looked up they noticed the propeller actually stopped and the plane rolled over and went into the house, said Akers.

Two people were on board. A male in his late teens or early 20s was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition. The pilot, a 45-year-old Redmond man, was dead at the scene. The passenger is from Spokane.

The NTSB said the plane hit a van before crashing into the garage.

No one on the ground was hurt.

It was not immediately known where the plane took off from and where it was going.

Puget Sound Energy was called in to repair a broken gas line.

The Federal Aviation Administration will investigate.
