Shocking! Video Captures Small Airplane Crash Into Power Lines Outside Seattle

A Seattle driver’s dashcam captured remarkable footage of a small single-engine plane crash in Mukilteo, Washington yesterday. Fortunately, Seattle area police reported no serious injuries. According to the Seattle Times:
The crash was reported at Harbour Pointe Boulevard Southwest and Mukilteo Speedway, according to a department tweet. The single-engine plane crashed about 3:40 p.m. shortly after taking off from nearby Paine Field airport. Police say several cars were damaged in the crash and a subsequent fire. Traffic on Mukilteo Speedway is blocked. Community Transit said it is rerouting buses on routes 113, 417 and 880. The Snohomish County Public Utilities District reported the crash caused a widespread but brief power outage in the area.

Imagine a world without dash cams…so much less compelling video to watch. Watch the footage above courtesy of ABC News.
