July 1, 2008 at 5:37 AM (PT)
A plane used to report traffic for CBS News KCBS-A/SAN FRANCISCO made an emergency landing in a quarry sand pile near a freeway on-ramp in OAKLAND MONDAY afternoon. Traffic reporter ALAN BROOKS was unhurt but his pilot suffered minor injuries in the hard landing.
The plane lost oil pressure and the motor seized up, causing the CESSNA 172 to come down just south of the I-80 ramp to the BAY BRIDGE.
