Three people were killed after a small plane collided with a home outside Detroit, according to the Oakland County Police Office.
The sheriff’s office said the three dead were believed to be the pilot and two passengers.
The office said that the family of five who lived in the house survived, but the house caught fire. The house is located in the town of Lyon, about 40 miles west of Detroit.
The mother said the family was inside when the plane crashed. She said they were in the living room arguing over what movie to watch and just moved to a different room when the plane hit the house.
WRI stated that if the mother, father and three children had stayed in the living room, it would have been a different story.

The house is located just north of the Auckland Airport / Southwest, which is administered by Oakland County.
Eric told Mullen that a plane crash was always his worst fear in this neighborhood because planes are always flying overhead at an airport about half a mile away.
“I have two brothers who are less than two years old, and they were sleeping upstairs; they were taking a nap … You worry like what might happen to us because this plane is flying low here all the time,” Chase Southwick,
