US Marine plane crashes in California desert

A US Marine Corps aircraft crashed in the southern California desert on Wednesday and civilian and military emergency crews were responding, but there were no immediate details about those onboard, the military said.

Naval air facility El Centro said in a Facebook post that the aircraft was from the third marine aircraft wing, an aviation unit headquartered at marine corps air station Miramar, in San Diego, about 115 miles (185 km) west of the crash site in Imperial county. The post said the plane had gone down near the community of Glamis.

The facility’s public affairs officer, Kristopher Haugh, said officials were still gathering details and he could not say how many had been onboard and whether there had been any fatalities.
