Harrowing video captured the moment a small plane crashed into a neighborhood near a California high school, killing a cardiologist who was piloting the doomed aircraft and a UPS driver on the ground. The twin-engine Cessna 340 is seen in footage posted by KSWB-TV falling behind a house in a quiet neighborhood, where it disappears from view before a cloud of smoke soon erupts.
