This video, taken by a bystander, shows a small Spektr-Aero aircraft attempting to take off from a busy road while using it as a makeshift runway, but almost immediately crashes in the most bizarre way. A dramatic footage has captured of a plane colliding with a parked truck by the side of the road in Russia.

A man sustained minor injuries after crashing a plane into a parked van on a public road in Chechnya. This bizarre incident took place in the village of Chervlennaya in the Schelkovskiy district, at around 7pm on August 7, as the aircraft plough into a parked van during take-off attempt on a busy road.

The pilot, who is not believed to have had permission to fly, attempted to take off in a light aircraft on the public Isherskaya-Kizlya road, however the aircraft did not reach any altitude and collided at speed with the parked van.

The pilot was taken to hospital after his single engine aircraft smashed into a parked truck. Emergency services responded to the collision and the injured pilot, a man in his mid-forties, who is expected to make a full recovery.

Moments before the smash, cars travelling in the opposite direction can be seen getting out of the way of the plane in an attempt to escape being caught in the accident. Fortunately, the driver of the damaged van was not inside the vehicle at the moment of the crash, and it is not certain why the plane was trying to take off from the road.
