Small Plane Crashes Into Pickup Truck in North Carolina
The accident occurred on a gravel road next to the runway at the Goose Creek Airport in Indian Trail, N.C., about 15 miles from Charlotte. The accident involved an experimental single-engine plane and a parked truck.
The plane's right wing slammed into the truck's windshield and roof. The truck was unoccupied and the plane's pilot was able to walk away from the crash.
There were reports a sudden wind gust may have played a factor in the faulty landing.
The kit plane was built by David Quist of Charlotte over the course of 18 years, reports WBTV. The plane reportedly just received its certificate of airworthiness in January.
The North Carolina Highway Patrol and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) are investigating the crash.
