Plane lands on highway in Minnesota.
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A single-engine plane landed Wednesday night on Interstate 35W, just south of Interstate 694, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.
The Bellanca Viking made an emergency landing near Arden Hills at about 9:15 p.m., crashing into an SUV on the interstate in the process.
Brittany Yurik was alone in the SUV that was clipped by the single-engine aircraft.
“I saw [the plane] coming at me probably one second before we collided,” Yurik said.
Her car was totaled, yet Yurik walked away unscathed, as did the pilot, 52-year-old Craig Gifford, and his passenger.
