This morning, a plane crashed on the 405 near Macarthur. The plane crashed on the freeway and burst into flames, which were extinguished by fire crews. Roads were initially closed but re-opened, however traffic is backed up for miles in either direction, so if you are planning on being in the area, a trip on the surface streets instead of the freeway is highly recommended.
