Navy jet crashes into apartments in Virginia

A Navy jet crashed Friday into some apartments near Virginia Beach, Virginia, sending flames and thick black smoke into the air, a military spokesman and a witness said.
At least two people were hurt, a hospital spokeswoman said.
The pilot and a person who was on the ground were being treated for injuries, but the nature and extent of those injuries were not immediately clear, the spokeswoman said.
Retired rescue squad member Pat Kavanaugh said he and others found one of the two plane crew members who ejected.
Kavanaugh was on his couch when he heard a loud boom.
"I saw a pilot on the ground with a parachute hanging from the building, with facial lacerations," Kavanaugh said.
