A small plane has collided in mid-air with a F-16 fighter jet over South Carolina, sending debris and plane parts into a nearby mobile home park.

Officials at Shaw Air Force Base said the F-16 pilot ejected to safety and was being treated for his injuries.

There were no details on the number of people aboard the two-seat Cessna C150 or whether anyone survived.

The collision happened at about 11:00 local time (16:00 GMT) roughly 11 miles (17km) north of Charleston.

The National Transportation Safety has launched an investigation into the crash.

Military jets from Shaw Air Force Base, outside of Columbia, routinely fly training missions over eastern South Carolina and the Atlantic.
