Small plane crashes in California parking lot, killing 5

5 dead in small-plane crash near South Coast Plaza

A Cessna 414 aircraft that took off from Concord's Buchanan Airport crashed in Santa Ana Sunday, killing five people aboard the plane, according to authorities.

The plane went down at about 12:29 p.m. into the parking lot of a Staples Supercenter, 3861 S. Bristol St.

Images from the scene showed the wreckage of the jet in the middle of parked cars.

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

The twin-engine Cessna plane was bound for John Wayne Airport when it crashed a mile (1.6km) away on Sunday. The plane struck at least one unoccupied vehicle, whose owner was elsewhere shopping at the time. There were no injuries on the ground, according to OCFA.

Assassination by drone? Venezuela's President avoids plot to kill
The ANC urges the government of Venezuela to get to the bottom of these attacks and to do everything to arrest this scourge. One of the drones was to explode above the president while the other was to detonate directly in front of him, he added.

"Fortunately, that person was inside the store shopping at the time of the impact", he added.

Authorities are still in the dark as to what was going on in the descending plane's cockpit.

Ella Pham, 20, and her boyfriend were just leaving the parking lot at the time of the crash.

"It actually came down in front of us".

"I don't know anything about what this pilot did or what he was thinking, but it could have been much more tragic", Bommarito said. The agency will investigate and the National Transportation Safety Board will determine the cause of the accident, the FAA said in a tweet.
