Crashing an airplane on a road in town
Yesterday afternoon, a light aircraft Piper PA-32 Cherokee Six crashed on a road in Mukilteo, Washington state. His pilot, a man from Oregon, had just debonded from Paine Field Airport when his aircraft broke down. He tried to restart the engine up to about 150 meters from the ground before resolving to make an emergency landing on the road. The pilot then headed to Harbour Pointe Boulevard, but his aircraft hit power lines and traffic lights, which ignited the aircraft's fuel before it crashed on the pavement fortunately cleared. Fortunately, no one was seriously injured in the accident.
