An 83 year old pilot, Nouri Hijazi, crashed a plane into two Southern California homes. He loved to fly and had taken to the skies for many years. A family went on a plane trip to Disneyland to see their granddaughter’s cheer competition, but on the way home the plane crashed into a residential Riverside, killing himself, and his 67-year-old wife Dana Hijazi and 22-year-old family friend, Adine Farelas. No one knows how the crash happened or what caused the crash.

He was a good pilot and flying was his favorite hobby.  Christy Crown, sister-in-law  of the Hijazis’ said “how incredibly devastated and heartbroken we are and still trying to process everything.” The granddaughter and the other young teen made it home safely because they took the bus with the other teammates that also went to competition. The younger teen, Sylvia Farelas, was severely burned over much of her body and had to have two surgeries since the plane crash. Their son,  Brandon Farelas, said that his mom called and told him about the rainy weather in Riverside. But authorities said that the rainy weather had nothing to do with the crash.

Before the crash, the team celebrated their first place win at this week’s cheer competition, according to their Facebook pictures that they posted on their page.  Adine Farelas posted that she had a blast with her mother and  Pierce. She was looking forward to going to Disneyland where the event was being held. A major fire happened and the two houses caught on fire. The plane slightly damaged two other houses when it crashed. But no one that was on the ground got hurt.  One of the houses that was hit was empty, but Dave Swinfard was sitting in the other doing a crossword puzzle when his roof collapsed. He was not hurt but he had a problem trying to get his 12 cats out of the house while it was burning down in flames.
