WATCH: Plane crash lands on busy Florida road

Shocking footage of a single-engine aircraft crashing on to a Florida roadway has been shared by the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office.

The incident was captured on two deputies’ dashcams on Sunday morning.

 

The plane reportedly suffered engine trouble and the pilot attempted an emergency landing on Keene Road in the city of Clearwater in Pinellas County, Florida.  

 

Some eyewitness accounts say the wing of the plane clipped a tree while landing, causing it to spin out of control.

Miraculously, both the pilot, Marc Allen Benedict, 61, and his passenger, Gregory Guinee, 55, escaped without injury.
