Dash cams are continuing to record more and more interesting scenes with a tow truck’s footage of a crashing plane ranking as one of the most memorable dash cam moments we’ve seen yet.

Tow truck driver Bill Chan slammed on the brakes and swerved as a Cirrus SR20 crossed his path with the tip of its right wing dragging across a busy road on Tuesday near Buttonville Airport in Markham, Ontario, Canada. The plane crashed nearby. Neither Chan nor the pilot and his passenger were injured. Chan had been driving to a family dinner on his day off.
