Man flies plane into his house after assault arrest

Deputies confirmed the pilot 47-year-old Duane Youd died in the crash

"There were two individuals in the home at the time that the plane went in", Sandoval said.

Flames engulfed the house in the city of Payson after the crash and ensuing fire at 2:30 a.m.

Duane Youd, 47, died in the crash, as the light-skinned Cessna disintegrated on impact and burst into flames.

A couple inside the home reportedly escaped uninjured.

"But he is an experienced pilot, and he flew from Spanish Fork Airport directly here into the home", Sandoval said.

It wasn't immediately clear who employed Mr Youd or whether he was authorised to take the plane.

Youd was arrested just hours before he smashed into the home where his estranged wife, Sandy, and a child were sleeping.

The National Transportation Safety Board will be at the scene later today to investigate, officials said.

Youd's relation to the boy was unclear, according to Payson Police Sgt. Noemi Sandoval.

Who beat Melbourne? None other than the criminal city of Vienna , best known for opera and having honestly way too many museums. In total, 68 cities have seen their liveability ranking improve over the past year, while it has declined in nine cities.

Investigators believe the plane belonged to Youd's employer and that he intentionally flew into his own house, Sgt Sandoval said.

Mr Youd was booked on suspicion of domestic violence and posted bail, Mr Cannon said.

After being released on bail, Youd requested a police escort to his home where he gathered his belongings and took his pick-up truck from the driveway without incident, police said. That's why Sandoval told The Deseret News that the incident was a "miracle".

Most of the house was still intact although the front of the building was burned heavily.

The couple had been drinking and had visited the American Fork Canyon to talk about their problems, authorities say.

Sunday was the second time Youd was arrested on domestic violence charges in the past year, Sandoval said.

Youd was sentenced to six months of marriage and family counseling sessions as part of a plea deal.

It is the second freakish plane incident in recent days.
