A small plane crashed on the 405 Freeway last week near the John Wayne Airport. The plane was a Cessna-310, which is equipped with twin engines. According to reports, one of the engines failed, forcing the pilot to perform an emergency landing on the 405 Freeway.
The pilot and his fiancée survived the crash and were the only passengers on the plane. Reportedly, an off-duty fire-fighter pulled them out of the flames. However, a video shows the passengers with blood on their faces and heads. This could means that they may be suffering from brain or head injuries. Luckily, the pilot managed to avoid crashing into most cars. Although, according to the video, he did clip at least one man’s truck.
Head Injuries from Plane Crashes
According to Statistics Brain Research Institute, the odds of being killed on a single airline flight are 1 in 29.4 million. This is quite low. In fact, according to another organization, the odds of being in a plane crash are around 1 in 11 million.
However, when planes crashes do happen, one of the most common injuries to occur is head injuries, which occur in 11% of plane crashes where people are injured. When there are fatalities in a plane crash, head injuries are the most common cause, occurring 38% of the time.
Every year in the United States, plane crashes result in approximately 1000 hospitalizations. Head injuries are the second most common injury sustained by plane crash survivors. They are the most common injury sustained by plane crash fatalities.
