WINTERS — Authorities say one person is dead after a small plane lost a wing and crashed just feet from a Northern California freeway.
California Highway Patrol Officer Chris Parker says witnesses told authorities that after the single-engine plane lost the wing, the rest of the plane went into a spiral.
Parker says the plane crashed about 30 feet off the side of Interstate 505, while the wing of the plane landed in the center divider of the freeway.
The pilot — the only person on board — was killed in the crash. The pilot's name has not been released.
There were no injuries to anyone on the ground.
