    A pilot and his passenger escaped with just minor injuries when their plane crashed as it left the runway Saturday at San Gabriel Valley Airport in El Monte.

    Firefighters and paramedics were dispatched to 4233 Santa Anita Ave. at 11:13 a.m., according to a Los Angeles County fire dispatcher.

    The aircraft was described as a twin-engine Cessna that crashed into a fence at the end of runway, just as the airplane lost power prior to going airborne.
