Fiery Plane Crash Shuts Down 101 Freeway.
A small plane crashed on the northbound 101 Freeway in the Agoura Hills area on Tuesday afternoon, leaving all lanes shut down in both directions. Crews responded to the freeway at Liberty Canyon Road just before 2 p.m., according to the L.A. County Fire Department.
The pilot has been removed from the aircraft and did not sustain any injuries, the agency said. The plane, a vintage aircraft with camouflage paint coat, crashed toward the center divider. Footage from the scene shows firefighters extinguishing flames that consumed the body of the plane.
No other vehicles were involved in the incident, the Fire Department said. The video shows traffic backed up for miles on the northbound side of the 101.
All northbound and southbound lanes will be closed for an unknown duration, California Highway Patrol tweeted at 1:59 p.m. The Lost Hills and Las Virgenes roads on-ramps have been blocked, according to CHP’s incident information page.
