    A small-plane crash in a city north of Seattle was captured on dramatic dashcam video Tuesday. 

    The single-engine plane crashed on Harbour Pointe Boulevard in Mukilteo, Washington, at about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, NBC affiliate King 5 reported

    No one was seriously injured in the crash, police said, according to the report. 

    Video of the crash shows the plane glide toward the busy road before striking telephone wires and a traffic light pole. 

    The plane then hits the ground, sending plumes of thick smoke and flames into the air. 

    "It struck the light pole where it erupted a fuel cell," Mukilteo police officer Myron Davis told King 5.

    An "engine anomaly" caused the plane to crash, according to the report.
