Investigators with the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating a deadly plane crash at the Oceano Dunes, according to Tony Cipolla, Public Information Officer for the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office.
Cipolla says the Sheriff's Office is handling the death investigation while the NTSB and the Federal Aviation Administration investigate how the accident happened.
Cipolla says the crash happened around 4:05 p.m. Wednesday and that the pilot, a man, was the only person onboard.
Emergency crews gave the pilot CPR, but he died around 4:30 p.m., Cipolla said.
