A small plane went down in Yorba Linda, California, on Sunday, killing at least two people, authorities said.
At least two people were killed on Sunday after a small plane crashed in a suburban neighborhood in Yorba Linda, California. The plane was a Cessna 414A and crashed shortly after departing the Fullerton Municipal Airport, investigators said. The pilot was the only person in the plane, a Federal Aviation Administration spokesman said. At least two people were killed and another two were injured after a small plane crashed into a suburban neighborhood in Yorba Linda, California, and set a home ablaze, the Orange County Fire Authority said Sunday. The plane was a Cessna 414A, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Allen Kenitzer told the Associated Press. It crashed shortly after departing the Fullerton Municipal Airport, though it’s unclear why. Kenitzer said the pilot was the only person inside the plane, though authorities still don’t know who among the dead and injured were inside the plane or inside the home. Both the FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the crash. The neighborhood was plunged into chaos and panic on Sunday afternoon, with residents describing a loud bang that “felt like a bomb,” as pieces of the plane rained down on their property. “One of the first things I did when I saw the damage was get on my knees and thank God,” Nancy Mehl, a 65-year-old resident, told The Los Angeles Times. “Talk about being spared.” Mehl told the newspaper she, her husband, and dogs fled to the back corner of their home when they heard takeoff-like noises. Then, a piece of the plane’s engine flew through a pillar on the front porch, and through a first-floor window and two rooms. Pieces of an exhaust pipe also blasted into the home’s second floor, and a propeller fell onto the driveway. Some residents described seeing the plane fall apart while it was still midair, telling the Orange County Register that it caught fire while it was still falling. Witnesses took to social media Sunday afternoon to share photos and videos of the flames engulfing the homes, emitting thick, black smoke.
