I suppose my commute could be worse:
- LAKE HARMONY, Pa. - The pilot of a small plane was forced to make an emergency landing on the Pennsylvania Turnpike Northeast Extension after he ran out of fuel yesterday. No one was injured.
Hollie E. Ewing, 75, landed the Cessna 120 without incident around 10:30 a.m. in the southbound lanes in Kidder Township, according to Pennsylvania State Police.
Ewing, of Garrison, N.D., told authorities that the highway was the only place he could land that was not covered by dense woods.
Investigators with the Federal Aviation Administration inspected the plane, which was then towed to Hazleton Airport.
