Military jet crashes into California neighborhood

(CNN) -- A military jet based at Marine Corps Air Station Yuma in Arizona crashed Wednesday in a neighborhood in Imperial, California, the Marines said in a statement.

Three homes were destroyed and eight evacuated -- but there were no reports of civilian injuries, officials said.

The AV-8B Harrier pilot ejected safely and suffered only minor injuries, the Marines said.

The jet crashed about 4:20 p.m. PT Wednesday in Imperial, about 90 miles east of San Diego.

Authorities are investigating the cause.

"I heard like a pop and a whistle. And right when I looked up is when I saw the pilot eject," Shaun Penniman told CNN affiliate KGTV.
