1 Dead, 5 Injured After Plane 'Lands' On Car in Highway Crash
A woman was killed and several people were injured on Saturday morning when a small place crashed onto a San Diego County highway.
Antoinette Frances Isbelle, 38, was a passenger in a Nissan on I-15 with fellow members of an area roller derby team when the plane smashed into the car around 9:15 a.m.
The other three passengers suffered non-life threatening injuries, according to North County Fire Protection District.
The plane's pilot, identified by KSWB as 62-year-old Dennis Hogge, reportedly suffered life-threatening injuries. His passenger, a 50-year-old woman, was not seriously injured.
Antoinette Frances Isbelle, 38, was killed Saturday when a plane landed on her car.
What caused the plane to go down was not immediately clear as California Highway Patrol said the FAA was investigating the tragedy.
However, a witness reportedly said the plane appeared at first to be attempting a belly landing in grass near the highway before realizing power lines made that impossible.
At least one witness said the plane "landed" on the Nissan.
Following the crash, San Diego Roller Derby posted a note of grief on their Facebook page regarding Isbelle.
"Thank you to all our friends and family who have been so supportive today in the aftermath of the horrific accident that involved two of our league members and two of our brothers at San Diego Aftershocks
"It is with great sadness and shock that we have to announce our league-mate Toni "Rockalicious" Isbelle has passed away after a plane hit the back of the car she was a passenger in.

A GoFundMe page has been created in support of Isbelle's loved ones.
