RENO, Nev. - A small plane with engine trouble crashed into a truck Saturday while trying to land on a highway in Nevada.
There were no major injuries.
Two people were in the plane; both had cuts from glass but no other injuries, said Lt. Kevin Honea of the Nevada Highway Patrol.
The two people in the GMC pickup truck hit by the plane were not injured, he said.
The call reporting the crash came in shortly before 9 a.m. PT Saturday.
A stretch of Pyramid Highway north of Reno was closed Saturday afternoon while the Federal Aviation Administration investigated the scene, Honea said.
The plane had taken off from Reno Stead Airport, according to Honea, and was headed for South Dakota. The pilot had planned a stop in Wyoming for fuel.
