At least five people are dead when a small plane broke apart in mid-flight at crashed into a home in Yorba Linda, California. Four of the dead were inside the house. The pilot of the plane also died.
Witnesses said the plane was on fire before it crashed. From NPR:
“Several witnesses described a dramatic scene in which the aircraft, a 1981 twin-engine Cessna 414, burst into flames and began breaking apart even before it hit the house. Security surveillance footage seemed to confirm that version of events, showing the out-of-control plane trailing black smoke as it fell to the ground.”
The Associated Press has obtained home video of the scene. Watch above.
Wreckage from the plane crash has been found over a span of some four blocks. A wing was in part of one street; an engine fell onto another, punching a gaping hole in the asphalt. https://t.co/9mM3hwGide
