The single engine plane was forced to make that emergency landing just off the highway in Merced.
The pilot says he lost power on a flight from Visalia to the bay area.
The aircraft clipped a U-haul truck on the way down, but the pilot still managed to land the plane without injuring himself or anyone on the ground.
The pilot says he started to feel the plane vibrating as he flew over Madera. The plane sustained damage to the landing gear when it hit the truck.
