VIDEO: Private plane crashes into busy California highway

Rory Cashin

A small plane crashed into a busy California highway earlier today.

According to reports, the private plane was due to land at John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, California.

Instead, it went down on the 405 freeway, one of the busiest highways in the California road system.

The good news is that both the man and woman on board were said to have survived the crash, with passers by stopping their cars to come their rescue within the fiery, damaged vehicle.

The accident did cause some major traffic delays within the city, but with the fact that there have only been two reported injuries from the incident, just about everyone involved should consider themselves incredibly lucky.
