The pilot of a single-engine plane was killed Tuesday when the aircraft crashed on a city street near a small San Francisco Bay Area airport, authorities said.
The crash was reported around 11 a.m. at a busy intersection along a golf course that’s adjacent Buchanan Field Airport in Concord, said the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District.
The district later confirmed that one person had died. No one else was on board the plane, and no vehicles on the ground were involved, officials said.
