Four killed after plane crash in Truckee, California

Four people were killed in a small jet plane crash in Truckee, about 100 miles northeast of Sacramento, California.

Two crew members and two passengers on board the Bombardier CL-600-2B16 Challenger 605 at the time of the crash on Monday.

No one on the ground was injured.

The plane was approaching to the Truckee-Tahoe Airport at the time when it crashed into a heavily-treed area near Reynolds Way. The plane had departed from Coeur d’Alene Airport in Idaho.

The crash sparked a wildland fire but was contained soon.

Video from a nearby surveillance camera recorded the moment the plane went down.
