A pilot was killed in a plane accident behind an Oceanside Elementary School during late morning on Tuesday. Before 11 a.m., the pilot’s plane went down near SR 67 in a field just behind Luis Rey Elementary School, which was not holding classes at the time.

The pilot, who has not yet been named, was flying a small plane currently identified as a twin-engine Beechcraft Baron. Flying from Oceanside Municipal Airport to an unknown destination, the pilot seems to have attempted to retreat to the airport but then lost control and crashed.

The plane burned after crashing into the ground, killing the pilot as it did. For now, it is unknown if anyone else was on the plane or where the plane was actually headed.
