Pilot dies after plane crashes into Los Angeles neighborhood

The pilot of a small plane has died after crashing into a West Los Angeles neighborhood two miles northeast of the Santa Monica Airport.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says the pilot of the single-engine Cessna 210 declared an emergency before the plane crashed Friday evening. Gregor didn't know the cause of the emergency.

He says the pilot was approaching the airport for a landing when the crash occurred.

Los Angeles Fire spokesman Brian Humphrey says the crash lit a palm tree on fire. Television footage from a news helicopter showed the charred wreckage on a street corner and a broken wing on the ground.

The FAA and the NTSB will investigate the cause of the crash.
