A Southwest Airlines flight on a route from San Jose to Orange County was diverted to Long Beach Airport after the Friday morning crash landing of a small aircraft near John Wayne Airport.

- ABC News (@ABC) June 30, 2017NEW: Video shows smoke and flames from a small plane that crash landed on the 405 Freeway in Southern California.

The Cessna 310 aircraft crash-landed just after 9:30 a.m. P.S.T. and burst into flames, reports indicate.

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. It is unclear if the injured parties were on the plane or drivers on the freeway. Both patients "had vitals" when they were removed from the plane, he said.

The airport is located next to the interstate, and the plane crashed in the southbound lane not far from of the runway it was trying to reach. One Twitter user called the accident the "scariest thing I've ever seen".

Other witnesses say the plane crashed in the northbound lanes but ended up on the southbound side.

The LA Times reports the plane, a Cessna 310, crashed short of the John Wayne Airport runway, clipping a auto as it crashed into the freeway and burst into flames.

The crash happened at the start of the busy Fourth of July travel holiday.
