Plane crashes on Florida road, video goes viral
FLORIDA: A small plane attempting to make an emergency landing at a Florida road crashed in the trees, however no casualties were reported in the incident.
In the video, one can see the plane flying dangerously low and crashing moments later. The officers rushed immediately to help and the entire footage was captured in the officers’ dash cam.
Miraculously the pilot and passenger were able to walk away from the crash, and no one on the ground was injured.
As seen in the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office’s dashcam footage, the single-engine plane is flying low over the Clearwater, Florida, road and suddenly banks to its left, soaring right over the deputy’s squad car.
Two deputies responded within seconds of the plane’s crashing onto the road. Luckily, according to authorities, the pilot who owns the plane and his passenger were able to walk away from the crash.
Fortunately, no bystanders were injured, either.
The plane is a four-seater 1975 Rockwell International 112A fixed-wing, single-engine aircraft, according to US media.
