Small plane crashes on I-405 at John Wayne Airport

The California freeway of Interstate 405 is one of the busiest in the nation, often topping the lists for the highest average daily traffic.

The Federal Aviation Administration said the pilot declared an emergency shortly after taking off from John Wayne Airport.

The people aboard the plane suffered traumatic injuries, according to ABC News. It is unclear if the injured parties were on the plane or drivers on the freeway.

Rahman said 260 civilians, including 82 children, were killed in the largely Islamic State group-held province of Deir az-Zor. The city is symbolic as its the first that the group captured as it moved across Iraq and Syria to create the Islamic State .

John Wayne Airport posted on Twitter after the crash that the plane had landed short of the runway, and the airport had to be closed temporarily to incoming planes after the incident.

Two people were on board the twin-engine Cessna 310 when it crashed "under unknown circumstances", according to Ian Gregor, a spokesman for the FAA. Several drivers stopped on the side of the road to help the plane's two occupants before firefighters arrived to douse the flames and treat the injured.

The man told KABC that the impact spun the vehicle around and that he saw flames all around.

No other vehicles on the freeway were struck, Kurtz said. He told ABC7 that he was driving on the northbound side of the freeway heading home to Santa Ana when he noticed a plane that appeared out of control, and that's when he started recording.

California Highway Patrol said that the plane clipped the auto of an off-duty fire captain as it was coming down, though the captain was not injured, KCBS reported.

In the aftermath of the crash, the airfield was closed to arrivals, but arrivals were resumed about 45 minutes afterward.
