Spectacular Beech crash landing!!!

There seems to be a spate of incidents at the moment, none more spectacular than this crash from California over the weekend:

According to the report, the Beech 18 landed on a grassy swale(whatever that is!!) right next to oncoming traffic.

Thankfully the pilot Robert Robinson survived, although some question how he did so looking at the crash site!!!

    There is actual footage of the site on the CNN website: http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/us/2007/09/22/pilot.survives.crash.wfor if the clip does not come up immediately type in the words “pilot survives crash” in the search.

    It would help if you got the correct State, at least. The crash occurred in Florida.
    A “swale” is sort of like a British “verge”.
    Cheers.
