SAN DIEGO (AP) - Military officials say a fighter jet pilot ejected safely from his plane moments before it crashed into a San Diego neighborhood, destroying two homes and damaging another.
A statement issued by Marine Corps Air Station Miramar says The F/A-18D Hornet jet crashed at 11:59 a.m. as it prepared to land at the base. The fiery crash occurred two miles from the base.
Maurice Luque, a spokesman for the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department, says he didn't know if anyone on the ground was injured.
