Small Plane Has Emergency Landing on a Street

A small plane was forced to crash land right in the middle of 18th Avenue South and 14th Street South in St. Petersburg Florida Wednesday afternoon.

The pilot was able to avoid hitting homes but did crash into two cars on his way down.

Witnesses credit the pilot for limiting the damage and potential loss of life following the emergency.

Surveillance video from a convenience store showed the small twin-engine plane coming out of nowhere then skidding into two cars.

One of the vehicles was driven by a grandmother in her 60's and we're told her two-year-old grandson was also in the car.

The woman’s husband, Way Williams, says his wife had little time to react.

“He kept on saying grandma airplane, grandma airplane and by the time she realized the plane was coming down it was too,” said Williams.
