ARLINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) – A small plane has made an emergency landing on the overpass that connects two major Arlington highways.
The single-engine Cessna came to rest on the Highway 287 southbound flyover that connects to westbound I-20 in west Arlington.
CBS 11 has learned that the pilot is not hurt, but the aircraft did hit a truck.
“We were heading west on 287 to get on 20, and as we come over 20, this plane was flying straight at us. I mean, he was coming straight at us,” said John Cornett, a passenger in the truck.
“I yelled at my buddy who was driving…I was in the passenger seat. As soon as he cut to the right, I think it was the back wing of the plane hit the front windshield of the truck and that was pretty much it.”
