Plane crashes into Santee neighborhood

October 18, 2021 Alan Ahdoot

The body of the plane then slammed into two houses, exploding and setting them both on fire.

Around 12:15 p.m., the plane nose-dived into a Santee neighborhood, the wing clipping a UPS truck and killing the driver. Michael Keeley was one of the locals who ran to help the older couple whose home had been hit.

The empty house that was also destroyed belonged to newlyweds Cody and Courtney, who were at work at the time of the accident. They had bought the house in June and had finally finished remodeling it — literally the day before the plane hit it. Chief Medical Officer Dr. Bharat Magu at the Yuma Regional Medical Center where Das worked issued a statement following the tragedy.

Authorities are unsure if anyone else died in the accident, noting that the plane could seat up to six and the scene was a difficult one to navigate.
