SAN DIEGO - The California Highway Patrol is investigating a report of a fiery plane crash on state Route 94 that turned out to be false.
On Thursday, CHP dispatchers received a call at about 7 a.m. that indicated a small plane with three people inside had gone down on westbound SR-94 near Lemon Grove Avenue.
However, when emergency crews arrived at the scene, there was no crash or aircraft.
CHP investigators later determined the report to be a hoax.
If the person responsible for the hoax is caught, he or she may face up to six months in prison.
