A pilot was hospitalized after their plane crashed in Pacoima on Sunday, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.
 
The crash, which occurred shortly after 2 p.m., involved a “small single engine airplane,” which was damaged when it landed on the Metrolink Antelope Valley line train tracks near Whiteman Airport, the LAFD said in a pair of alerts.
 
The Associated Press identified the plane as a Cessna 172.
 
After the pilot was removed from the plane by the Los Angeles Police Department, the aircraft was struck by an oncoming train, the LAPD Operations-Valley Bureau said on Twitter.

As it's California... I bet the FAA will determine the cause of the crash to be the train... (* ROFLMAO *)

Probably the FAA's first involving a train!

What are the odds of that happening?

I've no idea but as plane crashes themselves are rare, having one stop over a train rail alone, not to mention being hit by a train would be very very very rare to say the least.

It had to fall in exactly the wrong spot.
