Video shows plane hitting SUV near Texas runway

Posted: Updated:

ROANOKE, Texas (AP) - A woman who shot video of her husband landing a small plane at a Dallas-area airport captured the aircraft clipping an SUV driving near the runway.

The Department of Public Safety says both people in the SUV suffered non-life threatening injuries in the accident at Northwest Regional Airport. The pilot wasn't hurt in the crash landing at the airport near Roanoke.

The Federal Aviation Administration said Monday that the accident is under investigation.

The video shows William Davis trying to land the single-engine Cessna on Saturday when the plane's gear hits the top of the SUV. Pieces of the landing gear break off. The top of the SUV is damaged.

The airport is a privately owned public use facility. The word "stop" is painted on the roadway near the runway.
