(wow video !!!)

A Texas pilot is lucky to be alive after his plane clipped a streetlight, sending the aircraft crashing onto the highway below.

According to reports, the incredible video was taken on Saturday in Winnie, Texas. The plane took off from Highway 124, clipped a streetlight, and sent the vessel to the ground.

Local reports say the plane had been used in a parade as a float. So the pilot decided he would take off from the street to return home.

Luckily, the pilot was not injured in the crash. However, the street was closed for several hours.

The cause of the crash is currently being investigated, but it is believed windy conditions may have contributed to the pilot losing control.
