Five dead in Southern California plane crash

Five dead in Southern California plane crash

Sta. Ana - Ella Pham said it was a painful thing to see.

The Cessna 414 aircraft went down at the parking lot of a Staples store in the 3900 block of Bristol Street at 12:28 p.m. on Sunday, authorities said.

Another witness told local news media that he was coming out of a sushi restaurant when he saw the plane flying low.

Five people were killed after a Cessna 414 plane fell from the skies onto a auto parked in front of an office supplies store in Santa Ana on Sunday afternoon. "It was so heartbreaking just seeing the plane crumbled into pieces".

The aircraft was heading to John Wayne Airport, but it was unclear where it was coming from, according to spokeswoman Deanne Thompson.




It crashed in a parking lot for Staples, a CVS pharmacy and other retailers, said Captain Tony Bommarito of the Orange County Fire Authority.

Photos from the scene show the plane upright but on its belly outside the South Coast Plaza shopping center.

All five victims were passengers on the plane, according to the report. It was not immediately clear from where the flight originated and a phone call to the company was not immediately returned Sunday.

Investigators from the FAA and NTSB are trying to determine what caused the crash.
