Three homes damaged, two pilots injured after military jet crashed in a Texas suburb.

A military training jet has crashed in a Dallas suburb, injuring the two pilots and damaging three homes.

Both pilots managed to eject from the plane before it crashed on Sunday in Lake Worth, which is just west of Fort Worth, authorities said at a news conference.

Police Chief J T Manoushagian said one pilot's parachute got tangled in power lines and that both were being treated for injuries.

He said the people who live in the three damaged homes will be displaced because of the crash, which the local fire chief said could have been much worse.
