One was in the hospital in critical condition. Witnesses told NBC DFW that they saw one of the people in the plane get tangled in power lines. The other person landed in a tree.
The woman in whose backyard the plane crashed is OK, police said.
"I was in my car on [State Highway] 199 right in front of the donut shop when the pilot landed on the power lines," a witness, Cara Camp, told NBC DFW. "While driving, I heard a loud explosion, and debris was hitting the car."
The plane crashed about a mile from Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth. Police said at a news conference that Air Force and Navy investigators were at the scene, as well as law enforcement officials.
The injured people's names have not been released.
