A small airplane making an emergency landing crashed through a fence and into a car driving along a Texas parkway, per the outlet. KXAS.

TikTok user @jackschneider17 shared footage of the incident on Saturday near the Aero Country Airport in McKinney, Texas. The airport is located next to Eastbound Virginia Parkway, according to KXAS.

The footage showed the airplane emitting smoke as it attempted to stop on the airport runway but crashed through the fence and collided with a moving vehicle. The video then showed the debris from the crash and the plane being removed from the road.

On Sunday, a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) representative told Insider the pilot was flying a single-engine Lancair IV-P when he went off the runway around 12:30 p.m. The FAA representative added that two people were inside the plane and that the FAA and National Transportation Safety Board will investigate.

Representatives for Aero Country Airport did not respond to Insider's request for comment made outside regular working hours.

The McKinney Fire Department told Insider that paramedics evaluated three patients at the scene, including the two plane passengers and a person inside the car. The department added that one person was taken to the hospital with minor injuries, but it was unclear if the person was a passenger in the plane or vehicle.

Carlos Wiggins, who was driving on the parkway at the time, told KXAS that the incident shocked nearby witnesses.

"Everybody stopped. Everybody. All the cars stopped — like 15 feet, stopped," Wiggins told the outlet. "Mind went blank. I think everybody mind went blank."
