It was not an F/A-18. It was an F-14D from VF-31 based at Oceana, VA. They had engine problems and were trying to make it to NAS North Island and obviously didn't make it. Both crew ejected and are OK.
You guys were right. It's was an F-14 from VF-31 that crashed due to engine failure. I happen to hear the CO on the USS john c. stennis announce the crash while I was in the berthing sleeping, luckily no fatalities and luckily, it wasn't thee engine I was working on.
Unfortunately the bureau number is not mentioned nor can you see it in the pictures. I'll bet that eventually it will appear on an F-14 website. Or maybe a naval aviation magazine like Wings of Gold or Approach.
