INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — One person has been killed in a small airplane crash in the mountains near Lake Tahoe’s north shore.

Gregor says the aircraft took off from Palo Alto, Calif., shortly after 8 p.m. Thursday. There was no flight plan and it’s unclear where the plane was headed.

Gregor says it’s also unclear what time the crash happened, and the Cessna was heavily damaged in the crash, he added.
