this is the overpass. the single engine was actually headed to napa. eyes just spoke with the pilot. it was his father and son. they took off from livermore and were headed to napa. he says they had engine failure. that is when they noticed the plane was not going to make it. they actually, remarkably, tried to use this overpass as a runway, if you will. they said they just couldn't break it. they ended up going into a car. we have some video to show you, aerials and ground shots. and yes, i was driving by thinking it was possibly a fender bender, and then, lo and behold, we spotted this. seconds ago, i spoke with the father and son. they told me they had taken off. they were headed to napa for a day to together. let's hear what they had to say. >> we are fine. >> reporter: where you headed to the airport?
