Yesterday, a driver in Eastern Alabama was involved in one of the most unusual Alabama car accidents in recent memory. While driving west down Alabama Highway 14 near Notasulga, Mark Gray and his wife Carol Gray were struck by a Cessna 182 airplane.
Pilot Greg Custer of Lee County was attempting to use the road as an emergency landing strip after his plane started having engine problems. Custer successfully steered the plane past power lines on either side of the highway, but couldn’t slow down quickly enough to avoid hitting the Grays’ Ford Focus.
The plane struck the Ford in a rear-end collision, flipping the car and hurtling both vehicles off the road and onto the grassy shoulder. Neither Mr. Gray nor Mr. Custer and the other two passengers in the Cessna were injured, but Mrs. Gray was taken to a Tallasse, Alabama hospital for observation after suffering minor car accident injuries.
