Cerritos Crash Site

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Cerritos Crash Site

In 1986, two airplanes collided, one of which crashed into a neighborhood killing 82 altogether. At night and early in the morning, apparitions can be seen walking around and there’s an overall eerie feeling as if you aren’t alone.

    1. I use to live on Holmes avenue as a child. The house was haunted for sure. The kitchen cabinets would open and plates would fly out. My parents room had drapes that would move with the windows closed.

    2. I live nearby and I do believe it MAY be haunted. I mean, close to one hundred people died unexpectedly and in a terrible manner. People died on the planes and in their homes when the planes came crashing down. Just my opinion.

    3. I live just 9 minutes away by walking. I first heard about the crash in high school and parts of the plane had landed in my elementary school. I’ve never noticed any haunting or unusual events.

    4. I live very close to this site. I was 11 when it happened, and remember that day very well. I was in my room and the windows started rattling very loud. I thought it was an earthquake. I do believe it is haunted. I get an eerie feeling whenever I’m near it. I thought since I know what happened, I would bring some people, who didn’t know. They both had paranormal experiences there.

    5. I’ve had an experience here. It was pretty crazy. The area for sure is electrifying. If you guys have any stories would you mind me using them for my podcast? It mainly based on community ghost hauntings. Thank you for reminding me of my experience here! Another story to share =) Thank you!
