A plane burst into flames after violently crashing on a California freeway, RadarOnline.com can report.

A video taken by a driving witness shows a small twin-engine Cessna 310 quickly plummeting to the ground as highway drivers attempt to speed away.

The plane "hit the northbound side and bounced into the southbound side and burst into flames immediately," a witness told KABC.

The accident occurred this past Friday on 405 Freeway in Orange County, California, the FAA confirmed to ABC News.

According to reports, there were two people aboard the faulty plane, both of whom suffered grave injuries.

"They were laying on the ground, clearly, covered in blood, but they were speaking to us," claimed the witness. "We thought that we were going to witness people just burning to death ... it was the most frightening thing I have ever seen."

Radar has learned that just moments after taking off from John Wayne airport, the pilot placed a mayday call, telling air traffic controllers he'd lost an engine and would try to make it back to the airport.

Witnesses say that when the plane hit the pavement, the woman aboard was seen pulling the man out from the fire. Miraculously, nobody else was inured.

After the incident, the Orange County freeway was shut down in both directions and the airport was closed to arrivals.
