Dash-Cam Captures Terrifying Plane Crash At Intersection In Washington

May 3, 2017


This is a car's dash-cam footage from Mukilteo, Washington, of a small plane striking some power lines and crashing in a ball of flames. Amazingly (and thankfully), both the pilot and passenger survived the incident and nobody else was injured, although several cars were damaged by the burning fuel. "Dammit, Harrison Ford." I thought the same thing.

The pilot said he started started losing power and couldn't restart the engine. As he began to go down, he saw that Harbour Pointe Boulevard was clear and open, and steered that direction.

Snohomish County PUD said about 9,000 customers lost power in the area.

This makes me want to never leave my apartment. Of course, knowing my luck a jet engine would still crash through the roof. "Just like in Donnie Darko!" Whoa, okay, spoiler alert much? All I'm saying is the world is a dangerous place, and we should all work on our risk reduction strategies. "Says the guy who eats fireworks." Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

Keep going for the footage.

Thanks to HL, who agrees if you have to crash land your plane, the best place is right in front of a hospital.

    "Lost power", pictures of the prop from the crash clearly indicate the prop was spinning when it hit the ground. Also, I was 3 cars back from this video :-P

    Just because a prop is spinning doesn't mean it's spinning fast enough to push the plane.

    As an A&P and Pilot myself, I am well aware of that. The pilot had informed authorities he had lost the engine. Something isn't correct here.

    The biggest shocker of the video is the inability to drive properly from the people there.

    I thought "sheesh" too when I saw that in the beginning
