Florida residents can been seen standing on the outer edges of the bridge as black heavy smoke billowed from the small plane as the smashed up aircraft burned. 

Nearby drivers stood outside their cars and watched as a public bus and several cars were stuck on the bridge. 

Fire crews were able to put the fire out, but the bridge still remains closed as the damaged car and plane still remain there. 

The bridge is closed from Sunny Isles Beach and Bal Harbour, police reported. Authorities said to expect heavy delays.
