The Cessna 172 aircraft crashed about 2 miles northeast of John F. Kennedy International Airport around 10:20 p.m., according to the FAA.

The incident happened on Clarendon Drive, according to police.

Police initially said the plane crashed into a home, but footage of the scene shows the plane appears to have crashed in the front yard of a house.

While police said two people were on board, an FAA official later said "initial reports indicate three people were on board."

It does not appear as if anyone was injured, according to police.

The FAA plans to investigate.
