A pilot who lost power and crashed his single-engine plane in Mukilteo, Washington Tuesday walked away from the scene with no injuries. The Piper PA32 plane crashed at approximately 3:30 p.m. local time shortly after taking off from Paine Field, King 5reported.
"[The plane] struck the light pole where it erupted a fuel cell," Myron Davis, of the Mukilteo Police Department, said of Tuesday's incident. "It spilled fuel onto the roadway, onto a vehicle which ignited." Power outages were reported in the area immediately following the crash, with power restored "within a couple hours."
The incident, which occurred near Mukilteo Speedway, was caught on a driver's dash cam. Here's a longer version of that footage, via YouTube user Simon Li:
A preliminary report on the crash from the National Transportation Safety Board is expected to be released next week.
