Five people were killed on Sunday after a small aircraft crashed near the South Coast Plaza shopping center in the USA state of California, authorities said.
The Orange County coroner's office on Monday identified the victims as Scott Shepherd, 53, and Lara Shepherd, 42, of Diablo, California; Floria Hakimi, 62, of Danville, California; Navid Hakimi, 32, of Los Angeles; and Nasim Ghanadan, 29, of Alamo, California. The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board were investigating the crash.
No one was hurt on the ground as the twin-engine Cessna 414 aircraft clipped an unoccupied vehicle, but "fortunately, that person was inside the store shopping at the time of impact", Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Scott Shepherd was the pilot. Footage posted to social media showed the wreck of the plane, with at least 1 body outside.
There were no survivors on the plane and no-one injured on the ground, Orange County fire authorities said. The 4 passengers worked for a real estate company in San Francisco and were presumably on a business trip. Tony Bommarito said at a 2:15 p.m. news conference. "I thought it was like a semitruck that just tipped over or something".
"There was just nothing left and you could smell the gas", Kathy Hayden said. The fire department is on scene.
Bystanders told journalists they saw the plane falling nose-first.
All of the victims were declared dead at the scene, according to O.C. Fire Authority. The parking lot where the crash took place includes a Staples, a CVS drug store and a Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant, meaning that the area could have easily been congested at the time of the crash. NTSB said it expected to have a final report in 12 to 18 months.
