    This happened today in San Luis Obispo, California. One confirmed dead. This happened about an hour ago.


    Prayers go out to all affected.

    Per Heavy.com, the FedEx driver was not injured. I have seen one picture where it looks like the truck was hit with flaming debris. Sounds like the pilot was the only one killed. It was a Cessna 337 (push/pull twin engine) that crashed.

    a shame the pilot was killed, but fortunate that the driver apparently is okay....unfortunately for him however, he'll be receiving a preventable for not getting the big picture.

    Yeah sucks it happened, after I got off at UPS I came home and woke up from my nap with the alert on my phone. I live semi-near the crash site and could see the black smoke billowing from the building.

    I don't see a FedEx Truck.. .however there is a contractor truck for FedEx there, no worries about preventable, they don't do that at Ground.
