Video: Plane Hits Car In Texas

In perhaps the biggest "oops" of the year, the driver of an SUV failed to see a stop sign, and collided with a small aircraft at the Northwest Regional Airport, near Dallas. WFAA news reports that only minor injuries were sustained by the passenger of the vehicle, as the plane's landing gear clipped its roof. Pilot William Davis was completing his first solo flight, and his wife happened to be filming his landing when she captured the collision. For his part, Davis says he'll never fly a plane again, after this near miss.

Apparently, a private road crosses the north end of the landing strip. The only indication to drivers that there's potential risk of decapitation by landing gear is a faded "STOP" painted on the asphalt. Frank Laudo, driver of the SUV, says he didn't see it. You'll be inclined to believe him after you watch this video.
