Small Plane Crashes in Mall Parking Lot After Mid-Air Collision

Two small planes collided in the air near a Montreal shopping mall on Friday, March 17, with one crashing in the parking lot and the second reportedly landing on the roof.

According to police reports, both planes had only the pilots on board and both were injured. News reports quoting Public Safety Minister Martin Coiteux, however, said one person had died and three others were seriously injured.

The area was closed off after initial reports of a fuel leak. This video shows the wreckage of one of the planes in the parking lot. Credit: Facebook/Nicolas Lessard via Storyful
