DHL plane crashes on road after overshooting runway at Italian airport (PHOTOS, VIDEO)
Dramatic pictures from the scene posted on social media show just how close the DHL aircraft came to causing serious injury to anyone traveling on the road at the time. Miraculously nobody, including the three crew members on board, was harmed.
The crash happened at 4am local time Friday and caused the temporary closure of the airport, which is in the Lombardy region.
