A Yuba City woman is counting her blessings after a plane crashed into her pickup truck on Tuesday. Remarkably, she walked away with no major injuries, as reported by KCRA 3.

“I can’t believe I got hit by an airplane and survived,” said Dee Arata.

Arata, 41, described her Tuesday morning experience in Pleasant Grove as unbelievable and surreal.

“When I say I got hit by an airplane, I’m like, ‘Wow, I got hit by an airplane,’ ” she said.

The Pilot and Arata Left Barely Scratched

Arata and the pilot emerged from the accident with barely a scratch.

“I saw it seconds before it hit, seeing it out of my peripheral vision, something big and white and right there,” Arata recalled. “I knew it was a plane, and I said, ‘Oh God, I’m going to get hit.'”

Arata was leaving her residence in Yuba City to Roseville where she is an OR nurse. She usually takes backroads and often sees crop dusting planes in the fields nearby, but never this close.

Arata, a single mom who has worked hard for her teenage son, recognizes the odds of such an event.

“Honestly, I think it’s a miracle I am still here,” she said.

KCRA 3 reported that the plane was recently sold to someone in Louisiana, and the pilot was flying it to its new owner. Federal Aviation Administration records show that the plane had also been deregistered.
