BRUSH PRAIRIE, Wash. -- A Portland couple walked away unhurt from a 1964 Cessna 150D that crashed early Sunday evening into the front yard of a Brush Prairie home.

Pilot Philip Allen was flying with his wife Penny. He was attempting to land at Brush Prairie Aerodrome when he lost control and his landing gear struck a fence, said Sgt. Tony Barnes of the Clark County Sheriff's Office.

No one in the home was hurt, but they said they were shaken by the sight of a plane crashing in the yard.

"I saw the plane sort of bounce and I ran and came out," said Angela Congdon. "And my neighbor was already helping the people out of the plane."

"My children are expressing quite a bit of fear," Mark Congdon added. "They are stressed out by it."

A rabbit hutch on the property was damaged, but the rabbits inside were not hurt.
