    The plane went down at Highway 79 near the 48 mile marker.

    A plane crashed Saturday in Warner Springs killing two people, Cal Fire spokesperson Nick Schuler said.

    The single-engine Beech Bonanza 35 crashed off Highway 79 in the Warner Springs area shortly after 1:30 p.m., State fire Capt. Steve Foster said.

    Two people on board died, nobody on the ground was hurt.  The crash happened about 40 miles northeast of San Diego.

    The plane was registered to a Las Vegas resident but it's unclear where it was flying from or where it was heading, Ian Gregor from the Federal Aviation Administration said.  Warner Springs has a glider port but Foster says he doesn't know whether the plane was being used to tow a glider.  He says the region is a flight corridor for pilots heading from the Palm Springs desert area.
