On Wednesday, October 18th, 2017, a small Cessna 402 crash landed on a street in St. Petersburg, Florida. The incident was caught on camera by a local barbershop security system. When first looking at it, you might figure there is no way anyone made it out alive after that crash, but miraculously, everyone walked away from it.
The crash is still under investigation by the FAA and as of now, it is unclear what caused the pilot to have to land on a road. What we do know is that there were two people on board the plane and that it struck two vehicles driving on the road. According to a Tweet from the local police department, there were 3 injuries but luckily no fatalities.
The video, although not in the best of quality, clearly shows the Cessna coming in hot and slamming into the back of an SUV. It happened quickly and very violently. One of the employees of the barber shop said watching the crash was a “heart-pounding, earth-shaking experience.”
