Small Plane Crash in El Cajon

Editor’s Note:

Although I write for Santee Style, I wanted to share this story as I do spend time in El Cajon at my dad’s house.


Sunday afternoon Santee Style received a report of a downed airplane in the El Cajon area. As I was only a few blocks away I reported to the scene. On Second Street and El Rey Avenue there was a small aircraft in the center lanes of Second Street.

The Pilot and his passenger were able to climb out of the airplane and refused treatment on the scene.

A power line was clipped on the way down and there was a fuel leak.

Here are some photos from the crash. Photo credit: Katelyn Nelson – Photographer Santee Style
