BIG BEAR CITY (CBS2) — Authorities Sunday said the pilot of a twin-engine plane was injured after crashing into a home in Big Bear City.

The crash occurred about 7:20 a.m. on Mountain View Boulevard, according to Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor.

 

The pilot was taken to Desert Regional Hospital in Palm Springs, San Bernardino Sheriff’s spokesperson Cindy Beavers said. Gregor said his condition was not immediately known.

Preliminary reports indicated another person was injured, however, Beavers says no one in the home was hurt.

The plane reportedly took off from Big Bear Airport shortly before the crash.

The Sheriff’s Aviation, along with the FAA, are investigating the circumstances surrounding the crash.
