ARDMORE, Okla. (AP) - Authorities say no one was injured after a small, single-engine airplane hit an SUV as it made an emergency landing in Ardmore.

Ardmore Fire Department Capt. Chad Mansfield says the pilot of the Lancair propeller plane reported mechanical problems and wasn’t able to land at the Ardmore Downtown Executive Airport on Sunday afternoon. Mansfield says the pilot had to circle the area because another airplane had just taken off.

Authorities say the pilot hit the top of a sport utility vehicle before skidding to a stop several blocks away. No one was hurt, but the SUV’s driver tells The Daily Ardmoreite (https://bit.ly/1w8GK44 ) that the impact caused a bar to bend on the top of the SUV. The vehicle also had several dents and scratches.
