A dash cam video captured the moment a small plane crashed near a busy intersection in Washington state.

On Tuesday afternoon, the pilot of a small plane lost engine power over the city of Mukilteo, Q13 Fox reported. The pilot tried to land on a road that was clear of traffic, but clipped a power line on the way down.

"It struck the light pole where it erupted a fuel cell. It spilled fuel onto the roadway, onto a vehicle which ignited," officer Myron Davis told King5 News.

Police tweeted that no one was injured in the crash.

"He didn't want to hit a building obviously, he didn't want to hit an area where people are, and he saw this street was empty. He did a fantastic job," witness Khal Nouri told 11 Alive News.
