Authorities say a small plane crashed on a San Diego golf course, killing a woman and seriously injuring a man and three children.

San Diego Fire-Rescue spokesman Maurice Luque (loo-KAY') says it's unclear whether any of the five people aboard the single-engine, home-built plane were related. He did not know their names or ages.

Luque says the plane went down around 12:45 p.m. Monday near the 11th hole of the Admiral Baker Golf Course in the city's Tierrasanta area.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says the pilot took off from Montgomery Field and radioed the tower that he had an open door and was going to try to return. The plane was headed for Fullerton Municipal Airport.
