Coroner names 4 killed in house in Yorba Linda plane crash
Authorities have identified four people, including an 85-year-old man, who were killed on the ground when a small plane broke apart in the air and crashed into a Yorba Linda neighborhood last weekend.
The Orange County Sheriff's Department said the four victims were in a house that caught fire when parts of the plane rained down onto a home. Coroner's officials have identified them as 85-year-old Roy Anderson and 68-year-old Dahlia Anderson both from Yorba Linda; 48-year-old Stacie Leber from Corona and 58-year-old Donald Elliott from Norco.
Property records show Roy Anderson and Dahlia Anderson lived at the house that burned. The sheriff's department released a joint statement from family members thanking first-responders and asking for privacy.
The pilot killed Sunday was previously identified as 75-year-old Antonio Pastini from Nevada.
National Transportation Safety Board investigators collected parts of the aircraft, the plane's records and information about Pastini, who was described as a commercial pilot with an instrument flight rating.
