Two men escaped injuries after a plane smashed into a moving van, police in the United Kingdom said.

The incident unfolded at the Lambley Airfield in Nottingham on Thursday around 12:30 p.m.

According to the police investigation, the plane failed to take off properly from the airport, plowing through a fence before hitting the vehicle.

The driver of the van was heading to a job when the plane hit the passenger side of his vehicle. Both the plane and the van were badly damaged, but amazingly, the pilot and the driver escaped without serious injury.

Both however, suffered from shock. The Midland Ambulance Service sent an air ambulance to the scene, but it returned empty.
