A small plane caught fire after crashing into a bridge in Miami Saturday afternoon.

Smoke from the wreckage could be seen for miles.

At least one vehicle was hit when the aircraft crashed into the Haulover Inlet Bridge on Collins Avenue between 96 and 163 Street at around 1 p.m., authorities said.

Traffic in the area is currently closed, Miami-Dade police said.
