SAN DIEGO (AP) — A small plane has crashed in a San Diego shopping center parking lot, killing one woman on board and injuring another.

The single-engine Mooney M-20L went down around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday in a parking lot that serves a Costco and a Target store in the Kearny Mesa neighborhood.

Police Lt. Steve Behrendt says the plane clipped the top of the Target store and knocked down a light pole before landing.

The plane caught fire and Behrendt says the dead woman had serious burns. There's no word on the other woman's condition.

Ian Gregor of the Federal Aviation Administration says the plane had bounced while landing at nearby Montgomery Field, continued westbound and crashed.

Many witnesses tried to help, and fire officials say one of them suffered minor cuts and burns.
