CORONA, Calif. (AP) — A longtime radio traffic reporter was one of two people seriously injured in a Southern California plane crash.

KFI-AM said on its website that the station's traffic reporter Mike Nolan was on the single-engine Cessna 182 that crashed Friday night near Corona Municipal airport in Riverside County.

The station says Nolan is expected to survive.

Corona Police Lt. Shawn Dredla says the plane crashed in a residential area, took out power lines in its descent and started a fire that was quickly contained. There were no other damages or injuries on the ground.

Federal Aviation Administration records show Nolan is the plane's registered owner.

Authorities say his passenger is an 18-year-old whose name has not been released.

KFI says it appears the cause was engine malfunction.
