Haven't gotten a source besides a post by MyFoxPhoenix relaying something from a sister station in LA. What's going on over there?


Only thing that they say is that it was a small plane which clipped a tree and slammed into something else, no word on injuries but sounds quite serious

A friend of mine that lives in Westwood, along Santa Monica Blvd, just posted on Facebook that a plane had just crashed 6 buildings away from her.

According to my source it crashed in Westwood at the intersection of Glendon Ave and Mississippi Ave.

from @KimNBCLA on twitter:

LAFD says pilot dead in Westwood plane crash. No homes hit. No injuries on ground. Less than 2 miles from Santa Monica airport

Pilot declared an emergency shortly after leaving Santa Monica airport. Plane registered to Santa Monica resident.

More fuel to the fire for shutting down SMO.

Annual ritual of community crashes is becoming too much...

I know exactly where that is; don't live far from it, in fact. Always sad to hear about these incidents. They are happening way to often.

It does seem like it's in a very packed location, but at the same time, same with Scottsdale Municipal here in Arizona


How often does something like this happen?

Sounds a lot like Paulo's crash, except he made it back to the airport before crashing.


911, where is your emergency?
