Drivers Scatter As Plane Makes Emergency Landing On California Highway
August 14th, 2018
This would add some excitement to your day! These drivers had to move over, but not for another vehicle...for a plane! The small plane had to make an emergency landing onto the highway in the Bay Area. Reports said the pilot that a fuel line had snapped.
The original video description and owner of the dashcam footage said:
"My wife and I were just exiting Eastbound highway 238 interchange to highway I 580 northbound. I pointed out that the plane was flying very low. We continued onto I-580 when, without warning, the Cessna plane swooped down over traffic, then proceeded to hover until finding a clear spot in traffic to share the highway. My wife and I were continually yelling “Oh my gosh!”. Most of the traffic didn’t even respond nor were they slowing down. I feared they would hit the plane, so I turned on my flashers, started honking and weaving back and forth into lanes. Finally, we reached the tail of the Cessna as cars continued to attempt to pass on the right. I could see the plane leaking fuel. I exited the vehicle and ran over to see if the passenger and pilots were OK. Amazingly, no one was hurt, and no damage done to any vehicles nor the Cessna."
