The plane crashed between two houses in a Big Bear City neighborhood, but the pilot escaped with minor injuries. The plane struck power lines as it descended, but did not spark a fire.
The pilot, 39-year-old Audra Ellen Cramer of Redondo Beach, was taken to a local hospital. She suffered minor injuries and was reportedly in stable condition at a nearby hospital.
One of the homes sustained minor damage.
Cramer told emergency personnel she experienced difficulty during final approach, but it's unclear what that difficulty was.
