A lucky pilot escaped with 'not a mark on him' after making an emergency landing on a main road during early rush hour.
Emergency workers raced to the scene after the light aircraft came down on the A429 in Wellesbourne, Warwickshire, at 3.30pm yesterday.
But they were astonished to find that the pilot, a man in his 40s, had walked away uninjured.
Martyn Scott, senior paramedic from the West Midlands Ambulance Service, said:'The pilot got up and walked away. There was not a mark on him. He was totally uninjured.'
The pilot was the only person on board the Piper Cherokee when it crashed.
The road near Walton Hall was closed for several hours and all traffic diverted.
The Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) has been informed.
