Small Plane Crashes In Residential Neighborhood

GLENDALE, Calif. (May 22, 2012)--A single-engine plane crashed Monday night into a Southern California neighborhood, slicing through power lines but evidently not hitting any homes.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said the pilot of the Cessna 210 reported a rough-running engine Monday night near El Monte Airport.

Gregor said the pilot, who was flying alone, told air traffic controllers he would try to make it to Van Nuys Airport.

Gregor says controllers lost contact with the plane about 3 miles southeast of Van Nuys Airport around 8 p.m.

According to the FAA Registry, Allen K. Heng and James Roth own the plane.

Video footage on KCAL-TV shows the plane upside down on the sidewalk of Glenwood Road in Glendale.

The station reported the pilot is in stable condition.

Power was out in the area after the crash.
