On Tuesday, August 9, a small plane crashed-landed on a California highway, striking a truck carrying passengers before catching fire.

Just after 12:30 p.m., a plane crashed into the eastbound lanes of the 91 Freeway in Riverside County near Lincoln Avenue, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Video captures the moment the aircraft lands in the center of traffic, leaving a trail of burning jet fuel in its wake.

The Corona Fire Department has released video that shows the jet engulfed in flames and spewing enormous plumes of smoke before a firefighter puts out the fire with water.

Another photo from the department shows the charred remains of the plane on the highway.

The pilot and passenger onboard were both able to get themselves out of the plane safely
 CHP said.

The plane also crashed into a truck with three people inside, who were also fortunately unharmed.

CHP said that the pilot claimed to have made an emergency landing on the freeway after experiencing engine failure as it headed towards Corona Municipal Airport to land.

"(We’re) very fortunate today that the traffic was light, and the pilot appears to have made some good landing navigation that avoided what could have been a very bad tragedy," CHP Capt Levi Miller told KTLA.
