The incident took place in Mukilteo, Washington, Tuesday afternoon, authorities told local Fox affiliate Q13.

According to police, the pilot had been flying into the state from Oregon when he started to lose engine power. He was losing too much altitude to return to Oregon, so he attempted to land the plane on Harbour Pointe Boulevard, which he said was clear at the time.

But video footage, captured by a man named Guanting Li and provided to several news outlets, shows the plane take a sharp decline and dip into traffic with an explosion trailing behind it.
