VENTURA, Calif. (AP) — A single-engine plane crashed onto a Southern California beach’s jetty Friday and its three occupants escaped unharmed, authorities said.

“All passengers all are safely out and no injuries are reported at this time,” the agency said on Facebook.

The plane was being removed from the beach on Friday night.
