A single-engine Arion Lightning airplane with two people on board crashed Wednesday while the pilot was trying to land at Zamperini Field in Torrance, the Federal Aviation Administration said — but there was no immediate word on injuries.

FAA spokeswoman Eva Lee Ngai said the crash took place around 11 a.m.

Aerial images from the scene showed the small plane largely destroyed in a grassy area adjacent to the runway.

The crash was being investigated by the FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board, with the NTSB taking the lead, Ngai said.
