Pilot Dies after Crashing Aircraft on 10 Freeway near Corn Springs Road
DESERT CENTER, CA (November 25, 2019) – A pilot was killed in a plane crash Monday night in a remote area of unincorporated Riverside County.
The sheriff’s department received a witness report of the crash just before 6:00 p.m. on southbound 10 Freeway near Corn Springs Road.
The search efforts were hampered by poor visibility in the remote area. A more extensive search with the aid of an RSO helicopter helped determine the location of a downed plane, and ground personnel responded.
The pilot, who was the only person aboard the plane, died in the crash. The Riverside County Coroner’s Bureau identified him as John Brent Stackhouse, 67, of Canyon Lake.
Online flight tracking indicates the Beechcraft Bonanza V35 departed from Hemet on Monday morning and arrived in Mesa just before noon. The aircraft was heading back to Hemet but was diverted to Blythe because of turbulence.
The plane crashed for unknown reasons, about five and a half miles southwest of Desert Center Airport.
The FAA and National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the exact cause of the crash.
