Five people were killed when two small planes collided over Corona, CA, and debris rained down on a busy commercial strip of auto dealerships.
Four victims of the Jan. 20 accident were aboard the two aircraft that crashed about a mile from Corona Municipal Airport, says the National Transportation Safety Board. The fifth victim was killed on the ground after falling debris, including part of a cockpit, crashed through the roof of a Chevrolet dealership.
At Corona Nissan, salesman Pete Argueta was in his office when he saw a sales manager and four or five other men dashing for cover, screaming: “Run! Run! Run!“
“I thought they were playing,” Argueta tells the Los Angeles Times. “But then I saw small debris falling.”
