A Sikorsky S-76B Helicopter (N72EX) performing  flight from Santa Ana KSNA   was transitioning to the west of Van Nuys KVNY along the 101 Freeway in very marginal weather when suddenly crashed in the area of Calabasas.

All 9 onboard have reportedly perished – the five-time NBA Champion Kobe Bryant and his daughter were passengers of that flight.
