Dramatic dash-cam video shows small plane crashing in Mukilteo
MUKILTEO, Wash. -- A small plane crashed on Harbour Pointe Boulevard SW east of Cyrus Way Tuesday afternoon, damaging several vehicles but causing no serious injuries, police said. The dramatic dash-cam video above was taken by Guanting Li. Investigators said the pilot of the Piper aircraft, a man from Oregon, took off from Everett's Paine Field just before 3:30 p.m and then began losing engine power. He told investigators he was losing too much altitude to return so he attempted to land on Harbour Point Boulevard because it was clear. The plane, however, clipped power lines and then hit a street light, rupturing a fuel cell.
