LOS ANGELES: Two small planes collided above an airport in California on Thursday, officials said, with multiple fatalities reported.
Federal aviation authorities said two people were on board a twin-engine Cessna 340, and one person was flying in a single-engine Cessna 152, reports AFP.
"No injuries were reported to anyone on the ground," the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said in a statement to AFP.
The FAA statement did not specify whether all three people on board the planes had died.
The City of Watsonville's official social media accounts reported "multiple fatalities."
The National Transportation Safety Board will lead an investigation.
