CATHERINE CALLAWAY, CNN ANCHOR: We apologize for interrupting your show; we'll bring it back to you in a moment. First we want to bring these pictures to you. This live picture coming to you from WFLA in Tampa, Florida. This, of a single-engine private plane that apparently crashed today into the Bank of America building. This is in downtown Tampa. The building is in the 300 block of Ashley and Kennedy Boulevard -- this, according to a police spokesman.

This video show -- this live shot, as you can see what's left of the plane hanging off the side of this building. Still no word yet of any death or injury from this incident.

Tampa police, of course, on the scene. Fire -- Tampa fire crews are on the scene there. The building, however, does not appear to be on fire, as you can see. We're also getting some reports now that the pilot of this plane was a 15-year-old student learning to fly. This crash occurring about 5:00 p.m. Eastern time.

Once again, a small, non-commercial plane has crashed into this building in Tampa. This is the only information we have right now. We will certainly bring you more as it becomes available.
