Five Killed After Plane Crashes Into CVS Parking Lot in Southern CA
Five people were killed after their plane crashed into a CVS and Staples parking lot in Southern California on Sunday. No one on the ground was hurt, but everyone on board died on impact. Eyewitness Ella Pham said she saw a twin-engine Cessna crash, telling the Los Angeles Times: “We looked up to see the plane falling nose first. It was so heartbreaking just seeing the plane crumbled into pieces.” Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Arlene Salac said the pilot of the Cessna 414 declared an emergency before crashing about a mile from Orange County’s John Wayne Airport. The plane is registered to the San Francisco-based real-estate company Category III, according to an FAA database, but the company has not yet commented. The FAA will investigate the cause of the crash.
