2 Hospitalized After Small Plane Crashes in Sonoma County Vineyard

Two passengers who were aboard a single-engine, two-seat propeller plane that crashed in the 27000 block of Ramal Road near Sonoma Wednesday afternoon were taken to two separate hospitals, Schell-Vista Fire Protection District Chief Ray Mulas said.

A male passenger was flown airlifted to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital and a female was taken by ambulance to Queen of the Valley Medical Center in Napa, Mulas said.

The plane did not catch fire, and power lines that were knocked down in the crash did not did not cause a fire, Mulas said.

The plane went into a drainage area 70 feet north of Ramal Road and 100 yards short of Skaggs Island Road, Mulas said.

A Federal Aviation Administration official said the two-seat Kitfox plane struck power lines and crashed into a vineyard about six miles southeast of Sonoma Skypark airport at 2:17 p.m.

The Sonoma County Sheriff's Office and the California Highway Patrol sent helicopters to the crash site, Mulas said.
