Plane destroys car in dual carriageway smash

A Croatian man could be in a position to make a car accident compensation claim after an aeroplane almost landed on top of his Volkswagen Passat.

The bizarre road accident saw the light aircraft make an emergency landing on a dual carriageway in southern Croatia, missing completely crushing the car by a matter of inches. Instead, the plane's undercarriage scraped the top of the VW before touching down on the road's tarmac.

Despite braking heavily, the car driver was unable to avoid the aeroplane and smashed into the side of the fuselage, completely writing off his car in the process.

The dual carriageway was shut and emergency services rushed to the scene of the car accident in fear that several people might have died. Amazingly, however, nobody was killed and the car driver and his passenger were taken to hospital with minor injuries thought to include whiplash.

It is not known if either of the occupants of the car are planning to make compensation claims for the injuries sustained in the peculiar car accident.
