Plane makes emergency landing on highway, then crashes into a truck whilst trying to get back into t
An 800-hour, private pilot made an emergency landing on a public highway following a loss of engine power due to fuel starvation.
Attempts were made by the pilot to have the aircraft recovered and placed on a flatbed trailer and taken to a suitable airport nearby; however, the width of the trailer available for recovery was insufficient to accommodate the airplane's main landing gear.
After several failed attempts to recover the airplane by ground, the pilot elected to fill the fuel tanks with 15 gallons of fuel and, in coordination with local law enforcement, attempt to takeoff from the private highway.
Road traffic was stopped in preparation for the airplane's takeoff from the highway.
During the takeoff roll from the highway, the airplane's right wing collided with a side mirror of an 18-wheel truck (out of shot) and then struck the rear of an emergency vehicle.
The collision with the vehicles smashed the wingtip of the airplane, causing it to turn sharply to the right, and go into a ditch, coming to rest after impacting trees
