SAN DIEGO, April 2 (UPI) -- One person was killed and five others were injured when a small airplane crashed into a car traveling on a San Diego freeway, officials said.
According to the Los Angeles Times, there were two people in the aircraft and four in the car. The California Highway Patrol said the person killed was a woman in her 20s who was in the rear passenger seat.
