VIDEO/PHOTOS: At least five planes have made emergency landings on San Diego-area freeways in recent years, resulting in one death, multiple injuries and various amounts of damage.
The latest came Tuesday when a single-engine Piper PA-32 landed shortly after noon on Interstate 5 east of the Del Mar Fairgrounds, hitting a Kia sedan and losing part of a wing after it became lodged in the back of an Audi SUV. Two people in vehicles that were hit suffered minor injuries, but the pilot and passenger of the plane walked away uninjured, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.
The FAA is investigating to determine what led the pilot to land on the freeway.
Four other incidents involving planes have been reported since 2013 throughout San Diego County.
