A small aircraft crashed onto a busy Seattle street Tuesday afternoon.

Amazingly, Fox News reports that both passengers walked away unharmed and no other injuries were reported despite the aircraft splintering and colliding with multiple vehicles.

According to investigators, the aircraft left Evertt’s Paine Field in Mukilteo, Washington, around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday and began losing engine power soon after takeoff.

The entire incident was caught on camera.

Q13 Fox reported that the pilot, an Oregon native, began losing too much altitude to return to the airfield and made the decision to land on Harbour Point Boulevard, which he believed to be clear.

During landing, the aircraft wing struck power-lines and a street light, rendering a broken fuel cell and an explosion.

Amanda Hayes, one of the bystanders watching the incident unfold, reported to KOMO News that the wing scraped her car, adding, “When it was over, I wasn’t sure if we were OK, if our van was OK. I don’t know, that’s probably the closest I’ve come to really thinking, ‘oh this is the end.'”
