A one-man airplane was forced to make an emergency landing this week in Texas.
According to KPRC-TV, the plane crash-landed on State Highway 99 around 11:30 a.m. on January 22. As the plane made its descent it clipped a semi truck, causing the plane to hit the concrete barrier and catch on fire. The Grand Parkway was shut down in both directions as a result.
The Aviation Safety Network reported that the plane, a Beechcraft M35 Bonanza, lost engine power while on a survey route to Houston. Thankfully, both the pilot and truck driver were not severely injured.
HAPPENING NOW: DPS reports a plane down on 99, the Grand Parkway, near Cypress. Right now no reported injuries.
