New Smyrna Beach, FL – A brother and sister were seriously injured after the small plane they were traveling in crashed into a New Smyrna Beach home on Tuesday.

Volusia County Sheriff’s Office (VCSO) says the plane crashed into a home at 1049 Roberts Ln. in New Smyrna Beach, near Edgewater, shortly after 10 AM on Tuesday. The plane was thought to be approaching for a landing at Massey Ranch Airpark when it clipped some trees and went down.

According to VCSO, the occupants of the plane were 23-year-old Amrit Ramnarine and his sister, 21-year-old Asha Ramnarine. They were both transported to Halifax Health in Daytona Beach. Asha had to be airlifted to the hospital and sustained critical injuries. Amrit was taken to the hospital by ambulance and sustained serious injuries. They were not immediately able to provide any information about the crash due to the nature of their injuries and their need for medical treatment.

“The person who was in the house was not injured at all. She was fine. She wasn’t hit by anything and went on about her day after this,” says Andrew Gant, Public Information Officer for VCSO.

The Federal Aviation Administration is responding to the scene for further investigation. More information will be released as it becomes available.
