East Palo Alto Plane Crash Coverage by Media Center


Yesterday morning, MC employee Lupita Segura and I covered the crash of a small plane into an East Palo Alto neighborhood. The crash occurred in the cul-de-sac of Beech street near the intersection of Pulgas.

The plane was registered to Doug Bourn of Santa Clara, a senior engineer at Tesla. The names of the three victims all believed to be Tesla employees have not publicly released as of this writing.

Lupita and I were impressed with how well emergency services from several different agencies worked together to secure the crash site, evacuate the residents and contain and extinguish the several fires that broke out. There was a general sense of amazement that no one on the ground was injured.
