2 seriously injured in small plane crash in Corona

Two people were seriously injured Friday evening in a small plane crash near the Corona Municipal Airport.

Corona police said both people were taken to hospitals. The single-engine Cessna 182 possibly experienced engine failure, authorities said. The crash started a small brush fire, and SoCal Edison was also called to deal with downed power lines.

KFI-AM 640 says the pilot was Mike Nolan, its longtime traffic reporter. His 18-year-old passenger was not identified by the station, but KCAL-TV Channel 9 reported that the other person was Nolan's nephew.

The crash occurred about two miles from the municipal airport, near Lincoln and Harrington streets. 

The Corona Municipal Airport, which is north of the 91 Freeway on the edge of the Prado Flood Control Basin, is managed by the city's Parks and Community Services Department. A city website describes the airport as "extremely active, with approximately 50,000 annual operations."
