Auburn Police said that the plane lost power shortly after takeoff, with the pilot trying to steer back towards the airport before the crash.

Auburn Way is closed between Northeast 37th Street and Northeast 41st Street, and will be for several hours pending a National Transportation Safety Board investigation.
