escaped a potentially fatal plane crash on Monday, December 10 morning. The former "Full House" star hopped on an American Airlines flight from Dallas, Texas when smoke forced pilot to abort the take-off.

The flight company's representative confirmed the incident to TMZ, saying there was an electrical odor in the cockpit. Sources said that the AA flight 2421 went back to the gate shortly after pulling away as the cockpit was filled with smoke.

There were 211 passengers on board and they were all escorted out of the plane safely before transfered to a new Boeing 767. Due to the incident, the flight to LAX was delayed less than 2 hours, the rep said. It was unclear whether Olsen's twin was on the flight too.

The plane trouble came on the heels of a devastating news that Mexican singer has been killed in a plane crash. The National Transportation Safety Board confirmed that no survivors were found after the Learjet 25 crashed in a remote, mountainous area in northern Mexico on Sunday.

"My son Lupillo told me that effectively it was Jenni's plane that crashed and that everyone on board died," Rivera's father, Pedro Rivera, told reporters gathered outside his Los Angeles-area home. "I , believe my daughter's body is unrecognizable." Her brother Gustavo told CNN, "The plane was totally destroyed. ... It is a great tragedy."
