This is why roads are the worst place for an emergency landing. When I got my pilots license, every instructor I flew with all taught the same thing, only go for a road as a last resort. Not only are power lines and utility poles a hazard that are hard to see until it's too late, you put motorist in danger as well. Although, looking at where this happened on Google Maps, there wasn't much else to chose from, and the short distance from the airport, there was not much time to make a decision.

Running to the rescue? Nah, fuck him. WTF is wrong with people?
As far as not helping the pilot/passengers, do you really want 50+ soccer Mom's with kids in tow running over to a downed plane, besides we are only seeing one camera angle. Anyone w/half a brain would be very aware of the chance of another explosion, only the next one would not be spread out over 500 feet but would be localized at the planes final resting place.

Shit, and the only reaction/preoccupation of the car occupants seems to be what?

"Well I'd better avoid this new hazard."

I liked how at least one driver immediately started driving through other lanes of traffic to avoid whatever is off screen to the left. "Fuck you guys, I'm out!"

Shocking thing is that no one was injured apparently, not even the pilot. Watch the video and tell me how that is possible.

The fuel tank was immediately emptied and burned upon it hitting the traffic light, so when the plane "touched down" there was no explosion and they simply skidded to a stop.

The only thing that flat-earthers have to fear is sphere itself.

That was pretty freaky deaky, and a miracle that there were no serious injuries.
