One person died after a plane apparently went down in Sylmar Wednesday afternoon.

The incident occurred about 12:30 p.m. along the westbound 210 Freeway near Hubbard Street, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

One person was confirmed dead in the twin-engine Cessna 337 Skymaster. The victim’s age and gender are unknown.

After searching the aircraft, first responders did not find additional victims, and the Federal Aviation Administration later confirmed the pilot was the only person on board.

A small fuel leak was contained at the site and there is no fire, officials said.

Traffic on the 210 Freeway was impacted after the crash.

Aerial video showed authorities searching the area of the crash. The plane was severely damaged and left a large debris field near the highway.

A man who volunteers at a homeless bridge housing facility across the freeway heard the crash and ran to the scene to help.

He said he yelled to see if anyone responded. That’s when he saw the victim and realized it was too late.

The National Transportation Safety Board and the FAA are investigating the crash and what might have led to it.
