Watch the moment a small plane crashes into a moving SUV in emergency landing on a highway (video)

The picture above shows the moment a small plane crashed right into a transferring SUV in an emergency touchdown on Interstate 35W, simply south of Interstate 694 in Minnesota. 

The only-engine aircraft made an emergency touchdown close to Arden Hills at about 9:15 p.m. on Wednesday, December 2.

The aircraft additionally prevented different autos because it touched down, however crashed right into a shifting SUV on the interstate because the pilot tried to deliver it to a cease.

Fortunately, no one was critically harmed within the collision.

The pilot was recognized as 52-year-old Craig Gifford, of Minneapolis, to whom the aircraft is registered.

Brittany Yurik, who was alone within the SUV that was clipped by the single-engine plane, stated: “I saw [the plane] coming at me probably one second before we collided.” 

Her car was broken however Yurik walked away unscathed, as did the pilot and his passenger.

“I talked to [Gifford] last night,” Yurik stated. “He’s very kind. He was very apologetic. He explained to me what happened, and I just can’t believe we’re all OK. I think he was feeling the same thing.”

The crash is now under investigation by the Federal Aviation Administration and Nationwide Transportation and Security Board.
