Photos: Plane Crash-Lands, Overturns Near CSUN Soccer Field
A plane attempting an emergency landing on CSUN's soccer field this afternoon ended up crashing through a chain link fence and overturning, according to firefighters.
The single-engine plane lost power and attempted to land on a nearby soccer field, according to City News Service. Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey said the pilot overshot: "He just simply ran long on the athletics field."
The crash happened about five miles northwest of the Van Nuys airport. The plane didn't hit any people, buildings or cars. There was a small fire that firefighters knocked out quickly. Fortunately, the male pilot and female passenger survived without any major injuries.
