The plane was found in a wooded area near a neighborhood, according to ABC News.

DPS responded to reports of a low-flying plane Thursday night. Authorites said the plane clipped a power line. The pilot then tried to “nose up” to avoid the power line, but hit it and went nose down.

“So the whole front fuselage is in the ground, so the NTSB and FAA are en route here,” said Sgt. Richard Standifer.

The Cy-Fair Fire Department said there are no survivors, and the person killed is possibly the pilot.

Officials said the accident caused the power in a nearby neighborhood to go out.

Crews are working to restore power.
