A small plane crashed onto the freeway and struck an 18-wheeler in Houston. The plane crash occurred this morning at about 11:15 a.m. on the northbound lanes of the Grand Parkway, near Cypress Rosehill.
Officials say that the incident occurred when the plane lost power while flying near the Grand Parkway. The pilot attempted to land the plane on the freeway. While landing, the plane clipped the top of an 18-wheeler that was on the road.
The plane caught fire following the impact. The pilot was the only person on board at the time of the collision. Neither the pilot nor the driver of the 18-wheeler were injured as a result of the crash.
Officials say the pilot was flying on a survey assignment, and had been traveling from the West Houston Airport at the time of the crash.
The northbound lanes of the Grand Parkway were closed for several hours following the plane crash as hazmat workers cleared the scene.
