FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) – A small plane that made an emergency landing along an Arkansas highway was piloted by a former CEO at Wal-Mart Stores Inc.

Bill Simon, who led the company’s U.S. operations from 2010 to 2014, told The Associated Press he unfurled a parachute that brought the plane down Tuesday along Arkansas 16 outside Fayetteville High School.

Simon was flying to Waco, Texas, where he teaches at Baylor University. He says he decided to land the plane after its oil system failed, and relied on his training to bring the plane down relatively safely.

Simon says he suffered a burn as his air bag deployed.

Police say all three men aboard the plane were taken to a hospital, as was a woman whose truck was hit by the falling plane. Police say only minor injuries were reported.
