A small plane attempting an emergency landing in the desert near Barstow over the weekend crashed and killed all three people aboard. It is unfortunate, but accidents of small planes happen more often than with commercial airlines.
According to Federal Aviation Administration officials and the California Highway Patrol, the plane originated in Las Vegas and was headed to Corona. The pilot declared an emergency; he was attempting to land in Barstow when he crashed.
Officials are investigating to determine what the emergency was and why the pilot crashed.
