Pilot makes emergency landing in Laurel County after plane loses power

A small plane en route from Michigan to Florida made an emergency landing Monday morning on Ky. 30 in Laurel County, authorities said.

The Laurel County Sheriff's Department received a call at 10:25 a.m., reporting a plane on the road, dispatch supervisor Eric Smith said.

The only person on board the Lake Amphibian plane was pilot Krystian Zytowiec of Michigan, said London police Capt. Darrel Kilburn. There were no injuries.

Authorities are moving the plane from Ky. 30 to the London-Corbin Airport by tractor-trailer, Kilburn said.

The plane lost power, prompting the emergency landing, Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said.

The FAA is investigating the cause of the power loss.
