The pilot of the plane made it out without any injuries, something Lieutenant Brian Chaffin with the Madison County Sheriff's Office said was miraculous.

"The pilot, in my book, 20-years I've never seen a pilot walk away from a crash like this. I shook his hand a-while ago and told him "Hey. You're a lucky man."

The Madison County Sheriff's Office closed down both directions of Harvest Road from Wall Triana Highway to Caroll Road.
