San Diego Plane Crash Kills At Least Two, Including UPS Employee

 


The plane was a twin-engine Cessna C340, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.


The plane crashed yesterday in a densely populated suburb in San Diego, California, killing at least two people, including a UPS driver.

At least two others were injured in the incident.


Witnesses described an elderly couple being rescued from one of two homes that were destroyed in Santee, a largely residential suburb of 50,000 people.

At least three other homes sustained significant damage. Several vehicles, including a delivery truck, were also set on fire.


Dr. Sugata Das, who worked for the Yuma Regional Medical Center, was identified as one of the victims in the Santee crash, KYMA reported, citing the facility. He was remembered as an "outstanding cardiologist and dedicated family man."


"We are heartbroken by the loss of our employee, and extend our deepest condolences to his family and friends," the company told Fox News in a statement. "We also send our condolences for the other individuals who are involved in this incident, and their families and friends."
