The pilot of a single-engine plane survived a fiery crash in Roy, Utah on Tuesday, our affiliate KUTV reports.
Police said the pilot was helped out of the plane and was walking around. Sgt. Matthew Gwynn with the Roy City Police Department told The Salt Lake Tribune that the pilot and the driver of a car that the plane hit were taken to the hospital "out of precaution."
Our affiliate KUTV was only a few blocks away from the scene of the crash when it happened around 1:45 p.m.
The news crew captured footage of the plane as it flew low over an apartment building before going out of view. Seconds later they heard an explosion when the plane hit the ground. By the time KUTV made it to the scene, the plane was engulfed in flames.
Cami Hess, who witnessed the crash, told KUTV that she was still in shock after seeing the violent end.
"I can't believe what I just saw," she said.
