Light aircraft holding 400 kilos of marihuana crashes into truck
A light aircraft loaded with around 400 kilos of marihuana collided with a pick-up truck after landing in a field close to the El Bobadal in Santiago del Estero province, some 170 kilometres from the province capital.
The pilot of the plane, a Paraguayan native, was immediately arrested after crashing the aircraft into the truck when he had apparently tried to land in a farm names San Miguel, situated close to the border with neighbouring province Tucumán.
The unusual incident took place to the surprise of the farm workers in the area, after the plane landed and then collided into the Ford Ranger pick-up, which was parked in the field, the only vehicle in the area.
