CORONA, Calif. (AP) - A homemade aircraft has crashed into a cellphone tower in Southern California, killing one person and injuring another.

The Riverside County Fire Department said Sunday the plane hit the cell tower and went down in an unincorporated area of Corona, about 50 miles east of Los Angeles.

Authorities say one person died at the scene. A survivor was thrown from the plane and taken to the hospital with moderate injuries.

Firefighters were waiting for utility crews to arrive to shut off power before they can reach the victim in the plane.

No other details were immediately available.
