PINE BLUFF, AR (AP) - City drivers can add airplanes to the other traffic hazards they face.
The pilot of a single-engine, kit-built airplane brought it down Sunday afternoon on a city street after an emergency in the air.
The plane, a 1990 kit model known as a Cozy, ran over street signs and struck an automobile as it made an emergency landing on East Harding Avenue, a wide main thoroughfare on the city's east side, near the Pines Mall.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Lynn Lunsford said the airplane was flying over the city at 2:45 p.m. when its canopy opened and some debris flew back to strike the plane's rear-mounted propeller. Lunsford said the airplane sustained substantial damage, but no one was injured.
He said the FAA is investigating the accident, he said.
