From Out Of Nowhere
Jack Schneider was just at the airport to pick up a jet that he plans to fix up when he saw something that caught his eye.
He heard an aircraft landing, looked over, and saw a bunch of smoke coming off its tires. He already knew the plane was going too fast to stop by the end of the airport runway.
The small plane came barreling down into a fence and managed to hit a car passing by. According to the McKinney Fire Department and the FAA, the pilot was flying a Lancair IV-P and crashed onto Eastbound Virginia Parkway at around 12:30 pm.
Officials said paramedics assisted three patients at the scene – two from the plane, and one from the car. Luckily, only one person was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
The road was closed off for several hours as they investigated and cleaned up the scene. So far, the FAA and NTSB are still investigating the cause of the crash.
