A small plane crash-landed Tuesday morning on a busy highway north of Minneapolis.

Brooklyn Park police say it happened at about 10:32 a.m. in the southbound lanes of Highway 81.

Police say the plane – which is owned by Thunderbird Aviation – was approaching Crystal Airport and lost power mid-air. The pilot then made an emergency landing about 2.5 miles northwest of the airport.

The plane clipped several power lines on its way down before colliding with a car. The driver and pilot suffered minor injuries.

“The fact that [the pilot] impacted one vehicle and was able to put the aircraft down … is probably a testament to his skills as a pilot,” said Brooklyn Park Fire Chief Shawn Conway.

The National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration are investigating.
