ORLANDO– A pilot survived after the small plane he was flying ran out of fuel and crashed in an Orlando, Fla. neighborhood on Friday.

A passing motorist captured video of the crash, showing the plane crashing into a street and slamming into a brick letterbox before coming to rest, narrowly missing passing cars.

The pilot, Remy Colin, told ABC News it was to be a test flight for the plane, which recently completed its annual checks.

Colin said he was distracted by fixing the plane’s malfunctioning radio and neglected to check his fuel level.

The plane ran out of gas and lost all power.

Colin said he couldn’t see any other place to land so he decided to sacrifice the plane and did his best not to hurt anyone.

He said he suffered bruises but was otherwise fine and he was the only one on the plane.

The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board investigated the crash.
