PHOENIX (Reuters) - A single-engine plane crashed in a trailer park in north Phoenix on Saturday, killing at least one person, after the pilot declared an emergency loss of oil pressure and attempted to land at a nearby airport, authorities said.
The fiery crash also injured a man on the ground, officials said. It was not immediately clear if the pilot had died or how many had been aboard the Grumman plane.
"We're still in the process of determining what happened," said Suzanne Luber, an airport spokeswoman.
The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board were investigating the cause of the crash, which happened about 8:40 a.m. local time near Deer Valley Municipal Airport, the nation's third-busiest airport for small planes.
