SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (AP) - One person has been killed and another injured in a small plane crash at South Lake Tahoe, Calif.
El Dorado County Sheriff's Lt. Pete Van Arnum says the male pilot was killed but that his wife, the lone passenger on the plane, is expected to survive her injuries. She was airlifted to Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno.
Van Arnum says the couple is from Palo Alto, Calif. No names have been released.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says the single-engine Mooney M20 crashed in a wooded area about 11:15 a.m. Monday after taking off from the South Lake Tahoe Airport.
The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating.
