One hurt in Texas plane crash

A plane crash just outside of Houston, Texas, left one person injured, American media reported Tuesday. 

All 21 people were on board and all made it out safe, the local admin said, adding that one person was sent to the hospital with back injuries. 

Texas Department of Public Safety confirmed the incident in a field in the southeast corner of Waller County, which is not too far from the Houston Executive Airport, a public facility next to the city's Energy Corridor that mainly caters to corporate passengers.

Since the incident, FAA preliminarily identified the aircraft as a McDonnell Douglas MD-87, adding that the plane rolled through a fence and caught fire in a field while attempting to depart. The federal agency also confirmed that all passengers and crew on board exited the aircraft safely.
