The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department and Hesperia police say the plane crashed on a road and was on fire when deputies and first responders arrived shortly after 5 p.m. The plane crashed near Hesperia Airport.

FAA spokesman Tony Molinaro told the Daily Press that the plane was a Beechcraft Bonanza.


Authorities say a vehicle traveling on the road was struck and damaged by debris from the crash, but no one inside was injured.
