Small plane crashes in El Cajon, no injuries reported

Heartland Fire Units are responding to a plane crash site located in El Cajon at Second Street and El Rey.

EL CAJON (CNS) - A small plane lost power and crashed in northern El Cajon Sunday, but the two people onboard apparently were not injured.

A small plane was reported to have come down near the intersection of North 2nd Street and El Rey Avenue at about 2 p.m., said Mark Casey of Heartland Fire and Rescue, which serves El Cajon, La Mesa and Lemon Grove.

The plane lost power while in a traffic pattern near Gillespie Field, according to multiple reports.

Two people were in the plane at the time of the crash, but neither were seriously injured, and both refused medical treatment, Casey said.

The plane was leaking fuel after the crash, initially a cause for concern, but firefighters managed to put a stop to the leak, Casey said.

No one on the ground was injured in the crash.
