Coast Guard, local agencies search for downed plane near San Francisco

U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) and local agencies are responding to a plane crash near San Pablo Bay after two planes collided in mid-air above the Bay Sunday.

At approximately 4 p.m., the Sector San Francisco Coast Guard command center received a call about a small Cessna and a WWII-era aircraft that had collided. The Coast Guard launched four rescue boat crews and one rescue helicopter crew and established a temporary safety zone in the water while the Federal Aviation Administration has established a temporary flight-restriction zone in the area.

Debris has been located in the water, but there are no signs of the downed pilot at this time.

The incident is under investigation.

The USCG asked Mariners in the area to contact their nearest Coast Guard station if they find any debris in the water.
