ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Tampa Bay-area authorities say one person was injured when a small plane skidded off the runway during takeoff from the Albert Whitted Airport.
The twin engine plane had five people aboard Wednesday morning. Pinellas County fire-rescue officials say one person was taken to a hospital in stable condition, while the other four were checked by paramedics but declined treatment.
The Albert Whitted Airport is near downtown St. Petersburg and the Salvador Dali Museum.
