JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A twin-engine airplane crash landed on the Jacksonville freeway, snarling traffic during rush hour but remarkably injuring no one.
The accident happpened Tuesday morning after the 1957 Aero Commander launched from Herlong airfield. Officials say one of the plane's engines died and another was failing.
The plane flew under power lines and above a vehicle before touching down on Interstate 10. The pilot veered off the road to avoid the traffic, finally coming to a stop after the right wing got torn off by a tree.
The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating what caused the accident.
