#MembersintheMedia @abc7la On June 24, 2020 San Bernardino County Fire Crews were dispatched to a reported plane down near Cable Airport in the City of Upland. Initial reports indicated a plane had crashed 1/4 mile west of the runway. Crews found a single engine plane down with one occupant who was trapped inside. Crews extricated the victim, who thankfully only suffered minor injuries. Once extricated, crews initiated patient care and the patient was transported to an area trauma center with minor injuries.
