Melbourne: A light aircraft, carrying two persons and their pet dog, crashed in a busy street in Sydney, but the passengers had a miraculous escape as they walked away with minor injuries only, a media report said.

The single-engine plane brought down power lines and disrupted traffic when it crashed in Brenan Street, alongside Brenan Park in Smithfield at 12.30 PM on Wednesday, 'The Australian' newspaper reported.

Police say they found the aircraft on its roof after it crashed some 350 metres from St Gertrude's Catholic Primary School; a man and a woman in their 20s, and a dog travelling on the plane managed to get out.
