1 Dead When Plane Crashes On Interstate 15 In Cajon Pass

A small plane has crashed on Interstate 15 in San Bernardino County, killing at least one person and snarling rush-hour traffic in the Cajon Pass.

The FAA says the pilot of the single-engine Piper PA-28 was talking to air traffic controllers in San Diego at about 1 a.m. when they lost communication and the plane vanished from the radar.

The plane was on its way to Henderson, Nev., but it's unclear where it originated.

San Bernardino County Fire's Karen Humphreys says the department
was notified shortly after 6 a.m. this morning that the plane had crashed in the expansive, hilly median between the north and southbound lanes.

There was no fire.

One person was found dead inside the plane.

Traffic is continuing to flow but gawkers have made it a slow morning commute in the area.
