WATCH: Police Dash Cam Catches Private Plane Plummeting From the Sky

A police dash camera caught dramatic video of a small plane plummeting towards the ground in Florida on Sunday, according to Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office.

Per a police report, two Sheriff’s deputies were “caught by surprise when a single engine plane crashed in front of them.”

In the video, the plane can be seen soaring low overhead of the Sheriff’s car. The officers then rushed to the sight of the plane crash.

Somehow, the pilot of the plane and his passenger were not injured in the crash. The pilot, 61-year-old Marc Allen Benedict, told police that he and passenger Gregory Guinee, 55, experienced engine problems after taking off from an airport in Clearwater.

The Sheriff’s office also released a photo of the crashed plane:
