A plane crash at a McDonald's in Louisiana left a pilot in fair condition with some injuries. The incident happened on Wednesday and KLTV shared the details.

The pilot, Ray Martin, was airlifted to Shreveport after the plane crash in a McDonald's parking lot in Monroe. That particular fast food restaurant location is just across the street from the Monroe Regional Airport.

Martin was flying a v-tail single engine bonanza aircraft. Witnesses say that they saw the plane clip some trees just before the crash. Martin was the only one on the aircraft at the time of the plane crash at McDonald's. KNOE shares that Martin issued a mayday before the crash.

Reports indicate that the plane's engine had recently been rebuilt, and Martin was testing out the plane when it crashed. Martin, 41, is said to have a broken leg, but he is expected to fully recover. WebProNews reports that roads around the crash were shut down temporarily, but nobody else was injured in the plane crash in the McDonald's parking lot.
