Man Killed, Woman Injured When Small Plane Crashes Into Cellphone Tower

A man was killed and a woman injured Sunday in small plane crash into a cellphone tower near Lake Matthews.

Firefighters responded to the downed aircraft in the 20300 block of Farley Avenue, east of Corona off Cajalco Road, at 12:14 p.m., said Jody Hagemann of the Riverside County Fire Department.
