Another One Down

Another light plane down in the Bay Area, this time a 172 that landed intact on Interstate 580 near Livermore (KLVK). Amazingly, given the usually completely-packed-with-traffic state of 580 at that time of day, it didn't kill or maim anyone on the ground. The incident caused a huge traffic backup for morning commuters.

Ironically, the plane was carrying a traffic reporter covering the morning commute. Less ironically, the initial news reports suggest that the plane ran out of fuel.
