A small plane narrowly missed a truck's front hood before crashing near Buttonville airport in Markham on Tuesday afternoon. The incident occurred when the plane lost control right after taking off from a runway at Buttonville Airport, reports CTV News.
''That the aircraft wasn't involved in a collision with a vehicle coming through here is quite amazing," York Regional Police Sergeant Dave Mitchell told CTV News.
The truck driver said he was lucky to be alive after the plane missed his vehicle and flew extremely close to the truck before it hit an embankment on the side of the road.
''I was driving on the highway, I was picking up speed, and then the plane just came right in front of me,'' Bill Chan, who captured the incident on his truck’s dash cam told CBC News. ''I tried to dodge it, and that’s when everything crashed,'' he said.
After the footage was shared on social media, it quickly took over the internet. The video has been viewed more than 9,000 times and has collected a ton of shocked comments.
In 2017, a small plane crashed on a Florida highway and a video of the incident went viral online.
