This is devastating.
Erin Storm — who competed on Chris Grant’s season of The Bachelor — reportedly died on Monday after a serious plane crash.
Erin worked as a pilot for Pacific Blue Air and was flying an Airborne XT-912, a light-sport, weight-shift control plane from Hawthorne Municipal Airport when employees from Best Drilling and Pump, Inc. working on a tank nearby witnessed the tragedy, a local NBC affiliate reports.

"All of a sudden, my partner started yelling, 'Watch out, there's a plane coming!' and it looked like the plane veered up, lost control and hit a couple feet away from the truck, a couple feet away from us," employee Byron Mayes tells NBC News. "Our first thought was getting her out, making sure she was okay.”
