MESA, Ariz. -- A motorized parachute crashed into a couple of Mesa homes Saturday afternoon, injuring the 12-year-old passenger, according to police.

The preteen girl's injuries were not life-threatening, but she was transported to a hospital as a precaution, Landato said.

The adult man piloting the parachute was not transported.

Landato said there was minor damage to the homes.
