• Small plane crashes into Volvo XC60

Proving that there’s still some people out there that will help anyone in trouble despite being on the receiving end of a car crash, the driver and the passenger of this Volvo XC60, which had a small plane crash into it, came to the aid of the injured pilot. Apparently, the plane was landing when it quickly took off again before appearing to try a second landing. This second attempt lead the small aircraft into the back end of the Volvo. Officers are still not clear on whether this was a mechanical or human error.

Despite having their SUV completely totaled, both the driver and the passenger immediately got out of their wrecked ride to ensure that the pilot, who was pretty banged up from the car, was out of harm’s way. Fortunately, fire crews were already in the vicinity when the crash happened thanks to a drag racing event to which the XC60 was a part of.

The pilot was taken to the hospital with serious injuries after this traumatizing ordeal. Fortunately, there are still good people out there with the instinct to help, despite being the wronged party during this unbelievable ordeal.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

Well, I’m pretty sure that they both insured. Let the insurance company take car of the damages... but good thing no one is seriously injured.
