(audio not the best, but the TikTok video link is at the end, no too shabby, and thankfully, minor injuries.

Asmall airplane crashed into a car while making an emergency landing at a McKinney airport Saturday afternoon, injuring one person.   

The McKinney Fire Department responded to reports of a plane crash at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, according to the McKinney Courier-Gazette. Officials told the local newspaper that the plane was coming from Midland and trying to make an emergency landing at Aero County Airport, a privately owned landing field in North Texas.
A pilot flying a single-engine Lancair IV-P was unable to stop at the end of the runway. The plane broke through a fence and collided with a car driving by on the Virginia Parkway.

The newspaper said paramedics evaluated three patients at the scene, two from the plane and one from the car. One person was transported to the hospital with minor injuries, but it’s unclear what vehicle they were injured in.

Aero County Road was closed for hours as crews cleaned up the scene. FAA investigators are currently investigating the cause of the crash. 

Videos of the collision have gone viral on social media, including a TikTok that has gained more than four million views in less than 20 hours.
“Honey, I’ll be late for dinner, just had a head-on collision with an airplane,” one commenter wrote.

“That’s going to be a fun conversation with the insurance agent,” another said.
