TEMECULA, California (Lake Skinner) – Pilot Carl Numi, of Corona, was killed and his passenger suffered minor injuries after a single-engine Robinson R22 helicopter crash Monday morning just west of Borel Road and southwest of Lake Skinner, according to a press release issued by Riverside County Fire Department.
There are few details about the crash reported at 10:14 a.m., however, it’s possible that the helicopter’s flight path may have originated at the French Valley Airport in Murrieta as it is about four miles away from the crash.
