Pilot of small plane emergency lands, hits truck, survives

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Officials of a state in southern Mexico say the pilot flying a small single-engine plane suffered mechanical problems, staged an emergency landing on a highway, hit a truck, flipped the plane — and escaped uninjured.

The Guerrero state government issued photos of the plane lying on its back near the resort of Acapulco.

The 21-year-old pilot had taken off from a flight school in Acapulco for a training flight.
