The Danbury Fire Department has confirmed that a plane crashed on South Street Tuesday night.
According to the mayor's Twitter account, three people, two men and one woman, were on the plane, but none of them were seriously injured. Officials said they all walked away from the crash.
A Cirrus, also known as SR22, departed from Groton at about 6 p.m. and was headed to Danbury Municipal Airport, according to Federal Aviation Administration officials. The plane crashed at about 7:30 p.m.
However, FAA officials said the plane "was on a visual approach to Danbury Municipal Airport when it crashed."
Photos obtained by witnesses show a parachute was used to stop the fall.
It is unclear how much damage was caused to the plane during the crash.
Mayor Mark Boughton said power in the area was out for a couple of hours, but it has since been restored.
FAA along with National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the crash.
