Small Plane Overturns After Landing in Central Pennsylvania

Police say a small plane toppled over while landing at a tiny municipal airport in central Pennsylvania, but the pilot wasn't hurt.

St. Marys police say 64-year-old David Cox, of Shippenville, declined medical treatment after the crash about 11 a.m. Thursday at St. Marys Municipal Airport. That's about 100 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

Police believe a crosswind caused the plane to drift into a snowbank along the runway, which caused the plane to turn upside-down with the pilot still inside.

Police say no citations were issued in the crash, which will be reviewed by the Federal Aviation Administration.

Police say there appeared to be minimal damage to the plane.
