(MUKILTEO, Wash.) — A small plane crashed over a busy road in Mukilteo, Washington, on Tuesday, leaving behind it a burst of flames that was recorded in dashcam video.

The footage recorded by a motorist’s car showed the plane clipping power lines as it went down. There were no injuries, according to the Mukilteo Police Department, which posted images of the wreckage on Twitter.

Several vehicles were damaged in the accident, the department said, and at least one vehicle appeared to be burned, according to the images posted on Twitter. Police ordered the public to avoid the area.

According to ABC’s Seattle affiliate KOMO-TV, the plane crashed shortly after taking off from the Paine Field airport in Everett, Washington, which is located about 30 minutes north of Seattle.

One witness, Amanda Hayes, told KOMO that the wing of the plane grazed her car right before it went down.

“I’m so lucky,” Hayes said. “I just said, ‘Get down!’ And before I know it, I could feel the heat on my face… and like the fireball and the wing clipped at the end.”
