Quebec provincial police say two men are in critical condition after their small plane crashed into two houses south of Montreal early Friday evening. 

The Sûreté du Québec (SQ) said they received a 911 call around 7:30 p.m. about a small aircraft that had crashed in a residential area in Saint-Rémi, in Quebec's Montérégie region.

SQ spokesperson Catherine Bernard said the plane went down for a reason that is still unclear, near the corner of Rue de l'Église and Rang Ste-Thérèse. The aircraft crashed into one home, then struck some hydro lines before crashing into a second home, she said.

The men inside the plane were in their 30s and were rushed to hospital in life-threatening condition. They remained in critical condition on Saturday.
