Authorities say a small airplane with engine trouble struck a pickup truck during an emergency landing on a Nevada highway Saturday morning.
Nevada Highway Patrol Lt. Kevin Honea says at least two people were aboard the plane and two people were in the truck when the collision occurred about 9 a.m. on a rural section of Nevada Route 445 about 20 miles north of Reno.
He says all four escaped with minor injuries.
Their names weren't immediately released.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Allen Kenitzer says the plane, an experimental Thunder Mustang, was forced to land on the northern Nevada highway after losing power.
The crash occurred shortly after the plane left Reno Stead Airport en route for South Dakota.
