CORONA, Calif. (AP) - Federal aviation officials say a small plane has crashed in Riverside County, and local authorities are reporting two people survived the crash and are being treated for serious injuries.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Allen Kenitzer says the crash of the Cessna 182 single-engine airplane was reported at around 6:30 p.m. Friday in Corona.

Corona Police Lt. Shawn Dredla says the two people injured appeared to be the only people on board. They were taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Dredla says the plane crashed in a residential area and took out power lines in its descent.

After it crashed, the plane caught fire, and the fire was contained.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
