This dramatic footage was captured yesterday afternoon in Mukilteo, Washington. As traffic slowly inched along a busy road, a car’s dash cam caught a small plane clipping power lines just before crashing into a giant fireball.
Unbelievably, police say neither the pilot nor passenger was injured!
Investigators say the Piper aircraft began to lose engine power soon after takeoff from a nearby airport, and that the pilot attempted to land on a nearby boulevard because it was clear. The small plane lost too much altitude, clipping power lines. The explosion you see is from a fuel cell rupturing.
