Tony Bommarito, the public information officer with Orange County Fire Authority. On March 31, two people died when they flew their home-built plane into a shed in Santa Paula, in southern California.

Dashcam footage shows the plane abruptly taking a nosedive and slamming into a shopping center parking lot outside a Staples store in Santa Ana.

No one was hurt on the ground as the twin-engine Cessna 414 aircraft clipped an unoccupied vehicle, but "fortunately, that person was inside the store shopping at the time of impact", Orange County Fire Authority Capt.

All of the fatalities were aboard the plane, a Cessna 414 that was on approach to John Wayne Airport, said Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Steve Concialdi from the scene.

Ella Pham, 20, and her boyfriend were just leaving the parking lot at the time of the crash.

Police Chief Danielle Outlaw, who assumed command less than a year ago as Portland's first black female police chief, said in a statement that she takes all use-of-force cases seriously.

Family members identified one of the victims as Nasim Ghanadan, who was a realtor from the East Bay and on the flight for work.




Family and friends remembered Ghanadan in a series of Facebook tributes in the wake of her death.

Taos County sheriff's officials said Saturday that the children ranging in age from 1 to 15 were removed from the compound in the small community of Amalia - 145 miles northeast of Albuquerque in an isolated high-desert area near the Colorado border. The FAA said the pilot, identified as Scott Shepherd, declared an emergency just before the crash.

Fire authorities were called about the crash around 12:30 p.m. local time.

Several roads surrounding the shopping center and the South Coast Plaza mall across the street were closed.

The pilot of the Cessna 414 declared an emergency before crashing about a mile from John Wayne Airport, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) spokeswoman Arlene Salac said.

The same address was also listed for Floria and Navid Hakimi.

The plane was owned by Category III Aviation Corp., a San Francisco-based real estate consulting firm, according to KCBS. Eyewitnesses saw the plane make a turn and then go straight to the ground, nose-down.
