LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities in Las Vegas say a pilot walked away from a small plane crash near Mt. Charleston with no significant injuries.
Federal Aviation Administration officials say the crash happened about 6 p.m. Wednesday in a field near Cold Creek Road, between Indian Springs and State Route 156.
Officials say the pilot of the single-engine plane had tried to make a precautionary landing on a dirt road because of a low fuel warning.
Clark County Deputy Fire Chief Jon Klassen tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal the pilot was able to get out of the plane on his own and didn't appear to be injured.
The FAA is investigating the incident.
