Dashboard camera footage on Sunday captured a small plane as it crashed on a local road in central Florida, according to reports. Plane pilot Marc Allen Benedict, 61, and his passenger Gregory Guinee, 55, stopped at the Zephyrhills Municipal Airport to refuel but the plane began to experienced trouble after it took flight for the second time that day.

The footage emerged through a dashcam from two deputies with the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office (PCSO) as they were responding to an unrelated incident nearby in Clearwater, Florida. Benedict and Guinee had attempted to return to the Clearwater Airpark Airport, but the pilot didn't think they'd make it, police said. Benedict informed deputies that the engine of the plane was experiencing trouble, which led him to look for a safe landing spot.

The dashcam video depicts the small plane as it makes an emergency crash landing off the side of the roadway. Local law enforcement could be seen following the plane from a safe distance as it prepared to hit the ground.

"Two deputies were responding to a call for service in unincorporated Clearwater, and were caught by surprise when a single engine plane crashed in front of them on Keene Road, just south of Sunset Point Road," the PCSO wrote Sunday on Facebook. "Deputies rushed to the crash scene to assist the pilot and his passenger. The deputies dash cams captured video of the crash. Paramedics from Clearwater Fire and Rescue Department responded to the scene."

Benedict and Guinee did not suffer from injury following the crash, nor did any other citizens near the site of the incident. The pair had also reportedly refused to seek medical treatment.

The incident is being investigated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) as the cause of the crash has yet to be determined.

Plane crashes aren't very common. The likelihood that a plane would crash is one in 5.4 million, according to The Economist. Other reports indicate the probability resides more within the one in 11 million ballparks.
