IMPERIAL, Calif. - News Channel 3 and CBS Local 2 have learned about a military plane crash in Imperial, just outside of El Centro near the Mexico/California border. The plane apparently crashed into a house.
Lance Cpl. Christopher Johns, a Marine spokesman, says the jet was a Harrier from Marine Corps Air Station in Yuma, Arizona, but he has no further details.
The crash occurred early Wednesday evening. Television reports show at least one home on fire on a residential street in Imperial, about 90 miles east of San Diego.
Officials with MCAS Miramar said the pilot ejected in time. There's no word on the pilot's condition.
Wednesday night, the Marines confirmed no one on the ground was injured in the crash.
