Watch: Car and plane collide during Dallas, Texas, emergency landing
When the aircraft attempted an emergency landing at Aero Country Airport, it overshot the runway.
Over the weekend, a small plane overshot the runway during a landing at a Texas airport, striking a car traveling down a neighboring road and wounding one person, according to authorities.
Video captured the propeller plane's Saturday emergency landing in the McKinney, Texas, suburb smashing through a fence. Then it slipped and bounced onto the road, losing a wheel and coming into contact with a silver automobile that was traveling in the opposite direction of the single-engine aircraft.
A bystander who captured video of the crash on his phone, Jack Schneider, told WFAA-TV, "I saw the airplane coming down the runway quickly and I knew that he wasn't going to have time to stop." "It was obviously traveling too quickly; the tires were smoking."
According to a statement from the McKinney Fire Department, following the afternoon incident, medical personnel treated both occupants of the plane and sent the driver of the automobile to the hospital for minor injuries.
The aircraft was making an emergency landing at the Aero Country Airport when it took off from Midland, a Texas oil field city located 330 miles (531 kilometers) west of Dallas, according to the fire department.
The reason for the accident is being looked into by the Federal Aviation Administration.
