Plane Crashes Into California Home

One person was killed and least 5 others injured when a plane crashed into a home in California late on Monday according to a report from NBC.

From NBC:

At least five other people were injured, fire officials told NBC Los Angeles. In addition to the four people on the plane, two others were in an adjoining house, said Tyler Reynolds, a spokesman for the Riverside Fire Department.

It couldn’t immediately be determined whether the person who was killed was on the plane or in the neighboring house when the Cessna 310 smashed into the home about 5 p.m. PT (8 p.m. ET). The crash set the home ablaze and sent thick, choking smoke billowing into the sky.

The plane had just taken off from Riverside Municipal Airport headed for San Jose, California, when it went down about a half-mile northeast of the airport, which is about 60 miles east of Los Angeles, said Ian Gregor, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration.
