Investigators with the National Transportation Safety Board are in San Luis Obispo, looking into the cause of a deadly plane crash.
The crash happened Monday afternoon at the Promega Biosciences building on Granada Drive, about a mile and a half north of the San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport.
Authorities say shortly after the 337 Skymaster Cessna took off from the airport, the pilot reported having trouble. The plane hit some power lines, scraped the side of the building, then slid into a FedEx truck.
The truck driver was inside the building and was not hurt.
The pilot died on impact.
No one else was inside the plane when it crashed.
Authorities have not yet released the name of the pilot. According to the Federal Aviation Administration, the plane is registered to CSC Solutions of San Luis Obispo. The business is owned by Scott Metzger.
NTSB investigators arrived at the scene on Monday evening. Investigator Eliott Simpson said crews would go through evidence at the scene on Monday, then meet with a Cessna representative on Tuesday morning to continue the investigation.
