ROY, Utah (AP) - A Utah woman recovering from a car crash thought a cement truck plowed into her vehicle. It wasn’t until she was sitting on a sidewalk that she realized her car had been struck by a plane.

The family of Samantha Sandoval says it’s a miracle she walked away with only scrapes and a broken pinkie after a plane made an emergency crash landing Tuesday, sparking a fire on the plane and the rear half of Sandoval’s black sedan.

Roy police say bystanders helped Sandoval out of her car following the accident, and an off-duty Ogden police officer who was nearby helped the pilot out of the cockpit.
