Plane makes emergency landing along highway south of Sabin
CLAY COUNTY, Minn. – A small, single-propeller plane made an emergency landing about 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 15, roughly two miles south of Sabin along Clay County Highway 52, Sheriff Bill Bergquist said.
The sheriff said the pilot, the lone occupant of the plane, was not hurt.
"There was no crash," he said, adding that the pilot was trying to get to Fargo.
Clay County Lt. Mark Empting said the pilot told authorities the plane had iced up so he had to bring it down. The plane was not damaged during the landing, Empting said.
Federal Aviation Administration officials came to the scene to investigate.
