Nevada authorities say at least two people were on board the plane and two people were in the truck when the collision occurred on a rural section highway about 20 miles north of Reno.

All four escaped virtually unharmed. Their names weren’t immediately released.

A spokesperson for the Federal Aviation Administration says the plane was forced to land after losing power.
