Plane Lands on Twin Cities Freeway, Crashes Into Vehicle

The pilot of a single-engine plane made a “suspected emergency landing” on Interstate 35W in the Twin Cities late on December 2, striking a vehicle in the process, the Minnesota State Patrol reported.

Footage captured by a Minnesota Department of Transportation traffic camera shows the Bellanca Viking plane descending onto northbound lanes in Arden Hills, landing behind one vehicle and just ahead of two others. After touching down, the plane’s forward momentum leads it to collide with the vehicle ahead of it.

No one was injured in the crash, the state patrol said. Credit: MnDOT via Storyful
