Five dead as plane crashes into shopping centre car park in California

Five dead as plane crashes into shopping centre car park in CaliforniaFive people on board a small airplane were killed when it crashed in the car park of a Southern California shopping centre. The twin-engine Cessna was heading to the airport southeast of Los Angeles when it came down and struck an unoccupied parked car in the lot of a Staples store and a CVS pharmacy, Orange County Fire Authority said. There was no fire and nobody on the ground was hurt. Photos from the scene showed the plane upright but on its belly and the car damaged. Several roads surrounding the shopping center and the South Coast Plaza mall across the street were closed. Ella Pham, 20, and her boyfriend were walking in the car park on Sunday when they saw the crash, she told the Los Angeles Times. "We looked up to see the plane falling nose first," she told the Times. "We really didn't think it was a plane at first due to no crashing noise, but as soon as we saw people running from across the street we went to go check it out. It was so heartbreaking just seeing the plane crumbled into pieces."

The plane is registered to the San Francisco-based real estate company Category III, according to an FAA database. A phone call to the company was not immediately returned Sunday. The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the cause of the crash, Salac said.
