Small plane crashes in L.A. suburb, pilot survives
small plane crash
GLENDALE, Calif. — 600 people were left without power Tuesday morning after a small plane crashed into a residential suburb in Glendale, California Monday night.
The single-engine plane hit three power poles before crash landing into a yard upside down, avoiding homes. Nobody on the ground was injured.
The pilot was able to free himself and was taken to the hospital in stable condition; he is expected to be okay. He reported a rough-running engine and told air traffic controllers he would try to make it to the nearest airport. Controllers lost contact with the pilot three miles out from that airport.
Authorities are investigating what went wrong.
