Plane crashes, a second belly lands in southern California
A small airplane crashed in mountainous terrain in Southern California on Monday, about the same time a second plane made an emergency landing on a nearby golf course.
Three people onboard the plane that landed on its belly on the golf course in Westlake Village had minor injuries, while rescuers searched a rugged ridgeline for survivors from the crash.
The emergency landing and the crash “appear to be connected,” said Steve Whitmore, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. He could not provide further details.
Firefighters responding to a report of a small wildfire spotted aircraft debris on the charred site. Los Angeles County Fire Department Inspector Quvondo Johnson said ground crews later confirmed a small plane crashed.
The fire was extinguished quickly.
KABC-TV broadcast footage of the second plane sitting on the golf course in Westlake Village. The landing gear was not visible.
