A 2014 Ford Fusion was damaged following an impact with a small airplane which was making an emergency landing on a highway.

It happened towards the end of last month in northwest Minnesota when 57-year-old David Gowan flying a 1979 Mooney M20K airplane at a 1,000 ft. altitude noticed the engine stopped working so he had no other way but to do an emergency landing on a highway. He turned the airplane around and detected an almost clear path on the highway so he started the landing maneuvers.

According to an eyewitness, the airplane's propellers hit a 2014 Ford Fusion belonging to Clay County Health Department and driven by a woman named Corey Ernst who was doing about 65 mph (105 km/h) before the collision. Immediately after the impact, the mid-size sedan came to a stop on the side of the road while the plane managed to land in a residential driveway without causing any other damages.

All those who were involved in the peculiar accident escaped without any injuries.
