Watch the horrifying moment a small plane narrowly misses cars on busy Toronto road

Dash camera footage has captured the horrifying moment a small plane narrowly misses motorists on a busy stretch of road north of Toronto.

In the video, the plane can be seen flying dangerously low over the road, with one of its wings just missing the front of a vehicle.

According to CTV Toronto, investigators said the single-engine plane didn’t gain enough altitude during takeoff from a runway at Buttonville Airport in Markham.

It lost control and crashed through a fence before narrowly missing traffic on 16th Avenue near Highway 404, according to police.

The plane then crashed into a ditch on the other side of the road where it sustained significant damage to its nose and sides.

York Regional Police Sergeant Dave Mitchell said a male instructor and a female student were inside the plane but were unharmed.

No motorists were hurt in the collision either.
