ROY, Utah — A Utah woman recovering from a car crash thought a cement truck plowed into her vehicle. It wasn’t until she was sitting on a sidewalk that she realized her car had been struck by a plane.
The family of Samantha Sandoval says it’s a miracle she walked away with only scrapes and a broken pinkie after a plane made an emergency crash landing Tuesday, sparking a fire on the plane and the rear half of Sandoval’s black sedan.
Roy police say bystanders helped Sandoval out of her car following the accident, and an off-duty Ogden police officer who was nearby helped the pilot out of the cockpit.
The name of the pilot has not been released. Roy police say the man was largely unharmed in the crash.
