A small plane crashed near Annapolis, Maryland. One adult and two children on board, according to local reports. Officials said that no one appears to be hurt.

Lt. Erik Kornmeyer of the Anne Arundel County Fire Department said the plane crashed near a road, NBC Washington reported.

“We do not believe they’re going to need further medical attention,” he said of the people on board.

The plane’s wings were snapped off in the crash, helicopter footage revealed.

“The containment of that fuel is what our major concern is,” Kornmeyer told the NBC affiliate on Friday.

The plane was on its way to Lee Airport in Edgewater when it went down.

It’s unclear what caused the crash, and aviation officials told the Capital Gazette they’re unsure why the pilot declared an emergency.

The aircraft crashed in the area of Interstate 97 and Route 665 at 3:23 p.m. local time.
