DEA Plane Crash-Lands At Texas Street, Hits Tesla Model X And Toyota Corolla

A Drug Enforcement Agency plane has crash-landed at a street in Texas, damaging a Tesla Model X and a Toyota Corolla in the process.

Click 2 Houston reports that the small Cessna crashed with three DEA agents on board after attempting to land at Sugar Land Regional Airport. The pilots were on a training mission and encountered technical difficulties on the approach to the airport.

According to authorities, the plane took out a power line before crashing to the ground.

“You look at the aircraft and say, ‘Gosh, this could (have been) horrible.’ I mean, look at the houses around here,” Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls said.

“To be able to set it down right here and to be able to walk out of there (with only) minor injuries is quite an accomplishment.”

Remarkably, the two pilots were uninjured by the crash and the passenger was taken to a nearby hospital with just minor injuries.

Extensive damage was done to a Tesla Model X and Toyota Corolla as the pilots tried to avoid nearby houses prior to the crash.

The driver of the Corolla attempted to avoid the plane by swerving off the road and up the curb but was struck by the wing.

Speaking to the media, the Toyota’s driver, Jay Camp, said he and his mother were shaken up but uninjured after the crash.

“”(I was) shaken up, and I look up and I’m alive. And I’m telling you right now, you can never tell me that there’s not a God,” he said.

The white Tesla Model X took a substantial impact to its front fascia and front driver’s side door. Fortunately, neither the driver or his 3-year-old son in the back seat were injured.

    Be honest, that Tesla is the only reason you ran this article.

    That poor Toyota.
    Was the DEA looking for “someone” in the Tesla.

      Rumor has it Elon’s stash was in that Model X.

    ”(I was) shaken up, and I look up and I’m alive. And I’m telling you right now, you can never tell me that there’s not a God.”
    Good thing that he was not killed or seriously injured, because then it would probably mean that there is no god! 😮
    I guess, that other people that passed away in accidents are not so important…

      What a silly comment. Yours. Not his. That’s how HE interpreted THAT moment. THAT experience.

        So everyone has his own god? 🙂
        But I wouldn’t like to escalate it too much. I have nothing against believers. The sentence just seemed funny and irrational to me. He probably already believed, so using the accident as a confirmation of his religion seemed amusing to me… You know, normally I would not expect being nearly injured or worse and having my car damaged, if I would believe in some higher force protecting me…

          Near death experiences in cars tend to make believers out of all of us. The times I’ve almost lost it , behind the wheel, I clearly remember exclaiming oh God, oh God, oh God.

      You made two strawman arguments in two sentences.

      I’ll wager you don’t even realize you did it.
