A small twin-engine plane has dropped out of the sky and exploded in flames on a busy freeway near a Southern California airport this morning. The crash injured the two people on board and clipped only one passing vehicle, a fire official said. Spokesperson for the Federal Aviation Administration, Ian Gregor, confirmed that the Cessna 310 aircraft crashed on Interstate 405, just short of a runway at John Wayne Airport in Costa Mesa around 09:30am. The pilot declared an emergency shortly after it took off from the airport and was trying to return when the crash occurred, Gregor said. The people on board was a man and a woman in their 50s and 60s and were both pulled from the fiery wreckage and taken to hospital immediately. The plane clipped a blue pickup truck as it crashed on the freeway. Thankfully, the driver only suffered a minor bruised elbow. A driver, Brian Gladish, said he was driving down the freeway when he saw a large cloud of smoke and flames. "There was debris everywhere, the freeway was still on fire," he said. The scene was sectioned off for an investigation.
