The Santa Ana airport tweeted, the Cessna 310 aircraft landed on the freeway short of the runway at 9:35 a.m, . The witness said she saw a woman dragging a man from the wreckage. "Essentially tried to get control of my vehicle, checked my passenger to make sure he was OK, gave each other a hug that we were still alive".

It's incredible more people were not injured or killed, really.

The airport said it was "currently closed to arrivals but departing flights are not affected".

The investigation is expected to cause major traffic flow problems for the already-busy Fourth of July weekend.
