CONCORD, Calif. (AP) - A small plane has crashed and burned in the San Francisco Bay Area, killing the pilot.

The plane went down around 12:30 p.m. Tuesday near Concord.

Authorities tell KGO-TV (https://abc7ne.ws/2dGyz99 ) that the Beechcraft Bonanza may have clipped power lines before crashing in a hilly area.

FAA spokesman Ian Gregor says the pilot was the only person aboard and the aircraft was destroyed by fire after crashing. He says the crash site is about six miles east of Buchanan Field Airport in Concord.
