Sheriff: 1 dead in small plane crash in Northern California

A sheriff's spokesman says one person died when a small plane crashed into a house north of an airport in the San Francisco Bay Area.
 
San Mateo County Sheriff's spokesman Salvador Zuno says authorities were called to the scene in the Moss Beach area near Half Moon Bay Airport around 11:18 a.m. Friday. He said in addition to the death, one person was injured.
 
The person who died has been identified as 57-year-old Melissa Magee. 
 
He did not have additional details. The Federal Aviation Administration said two people were aboard the plane, and it was coming from Sacramento to Half Moon Bay.
 
Television news footage showed the plane up against a home, though most of the home was intact.
