February 01, Quartzsite, Ariz. / Beech Bonanza


At 1046 mountain time, a Beech S-35 landing at Desert Gardens Airstrip collided with a car crossing the runway. The pilot and passenger were not injured. The pilot said he was landing on the dirt strip when a car pulled out to cross the runway. He applied power to go around, but the left main landing gear struck the car and sheared off. The airplane then skidded down the runway. The car was on a road that crosses the runway.
