At least two people were killed when two planes collided while trying to land at an airport in California.

The planes, a twin-engine Cessna 340 and a single-engine Cessna 152, crashed into one another shortly before 3pm on Thursday above Watsonville Municipal Airport.

Two people were aboard the Cessna 340 and only the pilot was aboard the Cessna 152, according to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

Officials said “multiple fatalities” were reported, but it was not immediately clear whether anyone survived.

No one on the ground was injured.

The city of Watsonville, in Santa Cruz County and around 100 miles from San Francisco, posted a statement on the crash on social media.
