A plane, that had an emergency landing on the Minnesota highway in the US, collided with a car.

Iran PressAmerica: A single-engine aircraft crashed into a vehicle after being forced to land on a stretch of highway north of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Miraculously, no injuries were reported.

The plane reportedly experienced engine failure and executed an emergency landing on a highway on the northern outskirts of the Twin Cities, RT reported.

“Tonight deputies responded to a plane versus vehicle in Arden Hills, MN. No, you didn't read that wrong!” said a Facebook post from the Ramsey County Deputy’s Federation.

Photographs taken at the scene show the small aircraft rammed against an SUV, its propeller twisted by the collision. The aircraft’s landing gear was down, suggesting that the pilot was successful in using the highway as an impromptu runway, but had a harder time dodging vehicles speeding down the roadway.

Thankfully, no one was injured in the collision. 

However, the accident produced some surreal imagery. One video shows a column of cars and trucks delicately navigating around the highly unusual crash site. 

The pilot was identified as a 52-year-old man from Minneapolis. He was flying a single-engine Bellanca Viking plane. There was one other passenger in the plane, local media reported, citing aviation authorities.
