A small plane crashed shortly before 6:30 p.m. Friday in Corona, less than two miles from the municipal airport.

According to KTLA-TV Channel 5, the plane went down near Lincoln and Harrington streets.

Officials have not said how many people were aboard the aircraft, nor whether there were any injuries or fatalities. KABC-TV Channel 7 is reporting that there were two people on board who managed to escape.

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."
