Ryan Kartje of the Los Angeles Times tweeted that no players were in the plane, but “several USC staff and coaches were still on the plane when it began to slowly tip. There was a loud crash when it hit.”

Severe turbulence while flying through a lightning storm hurled players out of their seats with several telling the LA Times they thought they were going to die.
