Default Cessna 310 Crashes On LA Freeway

There's no denying that engine failure is twice as likely with a twin
engine aircraft.

================================================== =====================
June 30, 2017

Both occupants of a twin Cessna survived a crash on the 405 freeway
shortly after departure from John Wayne Airport. The pilot reported to
the tower that they had lost the right engine and were trying to
circle back to the airport (recording from LiveATC.com available
below). The tower offered the Cessna right traffic for 20R shortly
before the plane crashed northeast of the airport—either on a left
base for 20R or right base having overshot the centerline. In the
recording, the tower can be heard telling the pilot that his gear is
up, and the pilot reports that he’s delaying gear extension to try to
gain or maintain altitude.

The condition of the pilot and passenger are unknown, but presumed to
be serious. The Los Angeles Times reports that Orange County Global
Medical Center confirmed receiving multiple trauma patients from the
crash. No one on the ground was injured.
