Skydiver killed after jump near Murrieta

MURRIETA, Calif. Officials say the skydiver, a 40-year-old man from Boston, landed on a driveway in the rural La Cresta area west of Murrieta late Wednesday afternoon. The man's name was not released.

Sgt. John Kaiser says there was an open parachute, but he did not know if it had deployed properly.

Officials say the skydiver had departed from Skydive Elsinore at Skylark Airport.

Skydive owner John Hamilton says the man was with four others who jumped without problems, but this man appeared to have hit the tail of the aircraft.
