Plane Crash on California Freeway Injures 2 Passengers

The California freeway of Interstate 405 is one of the busiest in the nation, often topping the lists for the highest average daily traffic.

"The fact that a plane was able to land and only strike a single vehicle is extraordinary", Kurtz said.

John Wayne Airport, which is located in Orange County, confirmed that the plane was Cessna 310 aircraft and that the airport was temporarily closed to arrivals.

FAA spokesman Ian Gregor said the plane was trying to return to return to the airport when it fell from the sky and crashed on the freeway. Instead, it crash landed on the 405 freeway.

"Essentially tried to get control of my vehicle, checked my passenger to make sure he was OK, gave each other a hug that we were still alive".

Many Twitter and Facebook users were driving on the freeway at the moment the incident occurred around 9:35 a.m. Flights are still being allowed to depart.

Video posted on social media showed the plane completely engulfed in flames and strewn across several lanes of the freeway.

They were pulled out of the burning wreckage before being taken to a local hospital with injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening. "He says, 'Mayday!' From that point on the air traffic controller very calmly takes over", Madison said. The 405 Freeway was initially closed in both directions at MacArthur due to debris on the roadway.
