IVERSIDE, Calif. (FOX 11 / AP)[COLOR=#353E47][FONT="] - Four people were killed and at least two people were hurt when a small plane crashed into two homes Monday evening in Riverside, authorities said.
Authorities said the death toll could grow after the crash.
The Cessna 310 aircraft crashed shortly after taking off from Riverside Municipal Airport, the Federal Aviation Administration said. The plane was headed for San Jose when it crashed about a half-mile northeast of the Riverside airport, FAA spokesman Ian Gregor said.
The plane came down into a residential neighborhood and collided with two homes near the intersection of Dewey Avenue and Rhonda Road. Video from SkyFOX showed at least one of the homes appeared to be completely destroyed, engulfed in flames and littered with debris from the plane.
During a press conference Monday evening, a Riverside firefighter said a family of five from San Jose were on the plane and had traveled to Southern California to attend a cheerleading camp at Disneyland before the incident occurred.
Authorities said one person on the plane survived the crash but was rushed for medical treatment at a local hospital.
