1 killed, 2 injured in Bay Area small plane crash

PALO ALTO, Calif. (AP) — Firefighters in Northern California say a man was killed and two women were injured when a small plane crashed near the Palo Alto airport.

Palo Alto Deputy Fire Chief Geoffrey Blackshire tells KTVU-TV the single-engine Mooney M20 was trying to land when it crashed in a pond Tuesday. He says the plane had reportedly flown in from Redding.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the pilot was executing a go-around at Palo Alto Airport when it crashed.

Blackshire says the injured women were taken to a hospital by ambulance.

He says one of the women walked to the ambulance and the other was carried in a gurney.

The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating.
