It happened shortly after the plane left an airport north of Salt Lake City, Utah on Tuesday.

Federal aviation officials say a small plane made an emergency landing shortly on a Utah highway and struck a auto shortly after taking off from a nearby airport.

Kenitzer says investigators believe the pilot and driver of the vehicle may have both sustained minor injuries.

Roy police said the pilot was helped out of his plane after crashing, but walked away on his own power. Both people were taken to the hospital as a precaution.

Gwynn did not have details about where the plane was headed or if the pilot is a student or is fully licensed.

Ogden-Hinckley Airport manager Jon Greiner said the two crashes onto nearby highways seven weeks apart were "just coincidence".

The Federal Aviation Administration said the pilot of a Beechcraft airplane was attempting an emergency landing, but additional information was still being collected.

Police say a small plane struck a auto when it crashed into a neighborhood in the northern Utah city of Roy near the Ogden-Hinckley Airport.

The National Transportation Safety Board is now investigating why the plane went down.
