Dramatic plane crash caught on camera north of Seattle

MUKILTEO, Wash. (NBC) — A dramatic small plane crash was captured on camera Tuesday in Washington state.

The Piper PA-32 Cherokee Six clipped power lines and rained fuel onto cars as it plummeted into the ground in the city of Mukilteo, which is north of Seattle.

Authorities say the pilot had just taken off from a nearby airport when the plane suddenly lost power and crashed.

Amazingly, neither the pilot nor anyone on the ground was injured in the crash.

The crash did cause a traffic back-up for more than an hour and knocked out power to 9,000 homes for around 40 minutes.
