2 killed in crash of small plane

A single-engine, two-seat plane crashed Friday morning in a field near French Valley Airport, killing the two people on board, fire officials said.

A farmer who lives nearby spotted the small, white plane just before it crashed into a field about 11:50 a.m.

"It looked like it was making an approach to the airport, and then it just all of a sudden kind of rolled up and then nose-dived," said David Borel, 44.

Investigators are still trying to identify the victims, said Riverside County Fire Department spokeswoman Cheri Patterson.
