MIAMI — A small plane with three people on board crashed on a bridge near Miami on Saturday, striking an SUV with three occupants, the Federal Aviation Administration reported.
The single-engine Cessna 172 left Hollywood-Fort Lauderdale International Airport bound for Key West and soon lost power, the FAA said in a statement. The plane burst into flames after crashing.
Two people aboard the plane were taken to a trauma center and three people with non-life-threatening injuries were taken to a hospital, according to the Miami-Dade Fire Department. The department said Miami-Dade police would provide information on the sixth patient. Multiple calls were not returned by the Miami-Dade Police public information office and a recording said voice mail had not been set up.
Drone video on social media showed the plane crashing on the Haulover Inlet bridge with a damaged SUV nearby. A man can be seen exiting the plane and being helped by others on the side of the road just before the plane caught fire.
