5 killed in CA when plane crashes into parking lot

According to O.C. Fire Authority, a group of firefighters having lunch across the street jumped on their truck and rushed to the scene after one of them heard screaming. The plane hit an unoccupied parked vehicle. There were no survivors on the aircraft; no one on the ground was injured.

The incident took place around 12:30 pm local time, when malls and stores typically bustle with customers.

Five people were killed when a twin-engine aircraft crashed near the South Coast Plaza shopping center in Costa Mesa today.

On a breezy morning, Floria Hakimi smiled as her photo was snapped on the steps leading up to a small plane that was supposed to usher her to a workshop for real estate agents in Southern California.

"We looked up to see the plane falling nose first", Ella Pham, 20, of Santa Ana, said Sunday.

The plane crashed just a block away from South Coast Plaza, a large mall. Hakimi's son Navid Hakimi, 32, and Shepherd's husband, Scott Shepherd, the plane's 53-year-old pilot, were also killed. The car's owner was fortunately inside the mall shopping when their vehicle was hit.

FAA records show that the plane was registered to a company based in San Francisco and had flown from the nearby suburb of Concord, according to The Orange County Register.

"I don't know anything about what this pilot did or what he was thinking, but it could have been much more tragic", Bommarito said.

The crash is being investigated by the National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration.
