  • Plane crash

Pham, 20, and her boyfriend were walking in a parking lot Sunday when they saw a twin-engine Cessna crash, she told the Los Angeles Times.

Five people were killed on Sunday after a small aircraft crashed near the South Coast Plaza shopping center in the US state of California, authorities said.

A twin-engine Cessna bound for John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California, crashed into the parking lot of a Staples office supply store on Sunday, killing all five people aboard, Orange County fire officials said. The plane struck a parked vehicle but no one on the ground was injured, he said.

The plane went down at about 12:30 p.m. into the parking lot in the 3800 block of South Bristol Street shared by a Staples, a CVS pharmacy, a Michaels' decorations store, and a Wells Fargo Bank branch.

According to NBC Los Angeles, the flight tower at a nearby John Wayne Airport gave approval for the aircraft to land at one of its runways after the plane's pilot declared an emergency, before ultimately crashing.

The plane is registered to the San Francisco-based real estate company Category III, according to an FAA database.
