A small airplane on its way to Mitchell for the AirVenture Cup Race this past weekend had engine trouble and struck a pickup truck during an emergency landing on a Nevada highway Saturday morning.

At least two people were aboard the plane and two people were in the truck when the collision occurred about 9 a.m. on a rural, two-lane section of road 20 miles north of Reno.

All four escaped with minor injuries.

The plane, an experimental Thunder Mustang, was forced to land on the highway after losing power.

The crash occurred shortly after the plane left Reno Stead Airport en route to South Dakota, with a fuel stop planned for Wyoming.

The crash is under investigation by the FAA and National Transportation Safety Board.
