PLAINVILLE, Conn. (WKRC) - Surveillance video shows a plane crash into a tree in Plainville, Connecticut.

"I was sitting down at the end of the parking lot here, looked up because I heard the plane," David Southington said. "Saw it going directly across probably 200 yards from where I was sitting, knew it was going the wrong way obviously."

The plane narrowly missed a driver as well.

The plane had veered off a runway at Robertson Field Airport in Plainville before crashing into the tree in the parking lot of Carling Technologies.

Police said the pilot was taken to a nearby hospital with minor injuries.
