We expected traffic to get crazier as Texas opened back up, but this is just ridiculous.

Around 6 PM Friday evening, Temple Fire & Rescue units were dispatched to a call about a possible downed airplane. They searched the area of North Belton Middle School and spotted a small plane that had indeed made an emergency landing on Prairie View Road.

The pilot told first responders that his craft struck an electrical line after he experienced engine trouble, causing him to lose power mid-flight. Thankfully, no injuries were reported. Sadly, the beautiful plane took major damage to the propeller.

There wasn't much to clean up, and the pilot was able to get the plane onto a trailer and haul it away. This could have been much worse, so kudos to the pilot for landing safely and not getting anyone hurt.
