The accident happened around 9:30 am when a six seater Cessna 310 twin engine plane crashed onto the southbound side of the 405 Freeway near MacArthur Boulevard. The plane crashed just short of the runway for the John Wayne Airport, and quickly became fully engulfed. Firefighters from John Wayne Airport responded to assist in putting out the fire. A blue Toyota Tacoma may also have either been struck by the plane or hit wreckage on the freeway and was disabled at the scene.
Two people on board the plane identified only as being in their 60s, sustained major injuries and were rushed to a nearby hospital after the accident in unknown condition. Orange County Fire Authority Captain Larry Kurtz said that both patients “had vitals” when they were rushed to the hospital. The plane was a 1975 fixed wing Cessna 310R registered to a company in Santa Ana called Twin Props.
