Victim of Teterboro plane crash speaks after narrowly escaping death

? A 25-year-old man feels extremely fortunate to be alive after narrowly surviving Wednesday morning?s Teterboro plane crash.

Roland Foster was driving with a co-worker on Route 46 when the plane involved in the incident smashed into his car, tearing off the vehicle?s top. Foster says he only remembers speaking to his co-worker before briefly catching a glimpse of the aircraft.

Foster sustained a broken nose, bruises, deep cuts and a sore neck. The other person in the car with him at the time, James Dinnall, is listed in critical condition with head trauma at Hackensack University Medical Center. Foster called Dinnall a good man, and says he is very concerned about him.

Investigators are still trying to find out why the small corporate jet went off the runway at Teterboro Airport, skidded across Route 46 and smashed into a nearby clothing store warehouse. No one was killed in the incident.
