As a result of the crash, two buildings were engulfed in fire.
At least two people were killed, and two others were injured due to the crash of a light-engine aircraft on Monday on the territory located near the high school campus in Santee (California). This is reported by the local branch of the NBC television company.
The footage published by the TV channel shows that the plane crashed into residential buildings. The deputy head of the Santi fire Department, during a press conference, said that two bodies were found at the scene of the accident, while it was not specified whether the dead were passengers of the plane. “We believe that the people onboard received injuries incompatible with life,” he added.
A U.S. Federal Aviation Administration representative sent an email to the TV channel saying that the number of people on board the aircraft is being clarified. He also said that an investigation has been launched into the incident.
“You could see that he just fell at full speed,” one of the eyewitnesses commented on the incident. The crash also caught several surveillance cameras located on neighboring houses.
As a result of the plane crash, two buildings were engulfed in fire; firefighters managed to extinguish the fire. A post appeared on the school’s Twitter stating that all students are safe.
