Two Huntington Beach police officers and another man were injured after a plane crashed at the intersection of Cuyamaca Street and Marshall Avenue in El Cajon, CA on December 17th, according to a local news source.
As mentioned in the article, the accident occurred when a small plane reportedly crashed into an El Cajon parking lot on Sunday shortly after takeoff near Gillespie Field.
The 70-year-old plane was headed towards John Wayne Airport in Orange County before the engine reportedly malfunctioned. The plane went down and struck a light pole before it laid to rest against a fence between building complexes.
