As the 1946 airplane came in, its wheel touched the roof of a truck crossing one end of the runway and the plane tumbled onto the pavement.
The truck was on a widely used road that is equipped with lights and a gate to warn of approaching aircraft. It was unclear whether the safety equipment functioned, but seems the truck driver did not respect the stopping signs.
