A teenage girl allegedly jumped a fence, stole a plane and crashed it at a California airport



(CNN) – Police are investigating why a teenager jumped a fence, stole a plane and crashed it at California's Fresno Yosemite International Airport.

A 17-year-old girl is under arrest for allegedly stealing a King Air 200, a small private plane, and crashing into a fence at the airport on Wednesday morning.

Fresno police arrived and spoke with the young woman, who was sitting inside the plane with headphones on, said airport police chief Drew Bessinger at a press conference Wednesday afternoon.

The plane never took off and showed some damage.

The young woman's motive is unknown, but there is no reason to think that the fact has been related to domestic terrorism, Bessinger said.

The young woman seemed disoriented and did not cooperate when she was arrested, according to an airport press release.

No commercial passenger or plane was at risk, authorities said.
