A small, twin-engine plane crashed near the San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport, just feet away from a building housing Promega Biosciences, a biomedical lab, prompting evacuations of the block on South Higuera Street. Cal Fire confirmed that one person—the pilot—died in the accident, though officials hadn’t released the identity as of press time. Initial reports indicate the plane didn’t directly strike the Promega Biosciences building, but rather hit a parked FedEx truck. However, a New Times reporter on the scene described what appeared to be minor indications of impact to the side of the building. No other injuries were reported.
