Survivors of California freeway plane crash identified

Posted: Updated:

SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities have identified the couple whose small plane crashed and burst into flames on a Southern California freeway.

A California Highway Patrol report says 62-year-old Francis Pisano and 55-year-old Janan Pisano suffered spinal fractures and cuts in the June 30 crash on Interstate 405 in Orange County.

The Los Angeles Times reports Tuesday that both are in stable condition.

They were the only people aboard a twin-engine Cessna 310 that crashed on the freeway just short of a runway at John Wayne Airport in Costa Mesa.

Before the wreck, the pilot reported losing power in one engine.

The plane clipped a pickup truck, but nobody on the ground was hurt.

An off-duty firefighter pulled the Pisanos from the fiery wreckage.
