One dead after small plane crashes in Riverside County

Riverside County officials are investigating after a small plane went down on County Line Road Sunday morning.

The plane, a Cessna 172 model, crashed into a ditch at the edge of the road, according to officials. The plane landed on County Line Road a half-hour later. One person on the plane was killed and two people on the ground were injured. Two other people on the ground were injured on the way to the hospital.

The California Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.

At approximately 6:50 a.m. local time, a Cessna 172 pilot and his two co-pilots were preparing to land near North County Airport in Calaveras County when the plane crashed. There are no apparent injuries as a result of the crash.

The pilot of the Cessna 172, a 53 year old man who has been a pilot for about 19 years, was the only injured person in the crash. The two other occupants on the ground were both adults who sustained non-life threatening injuries.
