A single-engine Piper Cherokee airplane was pressured to crash land on the 91 Freeway in California after dropping energy about 45 minutes outdoors of Los Angeles. Sure, meaning this was a really busy freeway, virtually bursting on the seams with visitors. No, amazingly no person died, both within the aircraft or in a automobile on the roadway.
The small aircraft clipped a Toyota pickup truck earlier than spinning uncontrolled, breaking up and erupting in flames. Firefighters arrived on the scene in brief order and have been in a position to extinguish the fireplace and take away the wreckage.

L.A.’s KTLA Information spoke to Pilot Andrew Cho, who mentioned, “It felt like a tough bump. Arduous to explain. We have been 4 to 5 ft within the air when the aircraft stalled fully and fell to the bottom.” The Federal Aviation Administration is reportedly investigating the incident. Visitors was, not surprisingly, backed up for fairly a while eastbound on the 91.
Though it is fairly uncommon for small planes to crash-land onto highways, that is the second such incident recorded on video (that we all know of) thus far this 12 months. In July, a Florida man was pressured to land his aircraft on a freeway in North Carolina after dropping engine energy.
