In what seems like a bizarre incident, an airplane reportedly rear-ended a car on the I-35W highway in New Brighton, Minnesota in the United States.

From what we learnt so far, the shocking incident took place around 9:30 pm on the 2nd of December, 2020, when the pilot of a single-engine Bellanca Viking had to make an emergency landing on the northbound lanes of this highway. The whole incident was captured by the CCTV cameras placed close to the road.

To the pilot’s relief, there was less of traffic on the Minnesota highway and the pilot was captured attempting to manoeuvre his way by going for the small gap found in the moving traffic. The pilot was able to avoid the stationed lamp post and calmly glided the aeroplane down to the highway. Unfortunately, at the time the plane was making an emergency landing, there was a vehicle moving on the right lane.
Here is the footage from the CCTV camera capturing the moment when the pilot tried to make the emergency landing on the highway.

One of the wings of the plane was seen hitting the rear of the moving car. We couldn’t see the full extent of the damage on the car from the footage, but it looks like the plane will need a lot of repair works to get it back to the sky.
According to WKYC report, it was necessary for the officials on duty to shut down the Northbound 35W for many hours while they rid the road of the obstacles. The good news here is that no one was injured from this odd incident.
