Up to 50 people have died after a plane crashed into a house in New York.

US news sources are reporting that one person also died on the ground after being taken to hospital. Continental Express flight 3407 had apparently been delayed and was approaching the airport in Buffalo two hours later than scheduled. Twelve houses near the crash site were evacuated, because of concerns about the fuel left on the plane.
