The three other passengers were taken to local hospitals, deputies said.

Goldman, an assistant professor at the University of San Francisco, was the grandson of the late well-known San Francisco philanthropists Richard and Rhoda Goldman. The two people who had to be airlifted went to a children's hospital. "He will be greatly missed by his colleagues, students, and the countless alumni who were inspired by him in and out of the classroom".

William "Bill" Sachs Goldman, 38, of San Francisco was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Sonoma County Sheriff's Office.

Goldman's wife, Serra, is a member of the university's Board of Trustees and School of Law alumna.

She says William Goldman was an assistant professor in the International Studies Department in the College of Arts and Sciences.

A single-engine plane crashed in Sonoma County Thursday afternoon, killing one person. "I said, 'Oh my gosh, someone's alive, let's see what we can do'".

Preliminary information shows the plane crashed under unknown circumstances in a field about 1,000 feet west of Sonoma Skypark, Gregor said.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said the plane was a single-engine Cirrus SR-22 and was equipped with a parachute system that can deploy in case of emergencies.

The FAA and National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the crash, Gregor said.
