LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Authorities say a fuel problem forced a two-passenger single-engine plane to make an emergency landing on Highway 60 near Sellersburg Saturday morning.
The Clark County Sheriff's Office says the two-passenger plane made the emergency landing on the highway just before 10:00 Saturday morning, slightly scraping a pickup truck as it reached the ground. No one was injured.
The plane's wing clipped a pickup driven by David Via, who said he tried to get over into the shoulder.
"There was a ditch there, there was nothing I could do but hold on," said Via. "Well I was thinking, this doesn't happen everyday. You don't look up and see a plane coming out you. It was pretty frightening."
After the plane pulled off of the road and refueled, police escorted it about two miles to the Clark County Airport. The Federal Aviation Administration gave the sheriff's department permission to move the plane.
"It's probably a miracle that no one was injured in this," said Cpl. Nick Mobley with the Clark County Sheriff's Department.
