Commuter plane hits fence in Somerset

No one was injured when a commuter plane's landing gear apparently malfunctioned, causing the plane to hit a fence at the Lake Cumberland Regional Airport on Saturday, officials said.

Emergency crews were called to the airport when Locair Flight 151, traveling from the Baltimore/Washington International Airport, landed shortly after 3 p.m. Somerset Fire Department Battalion Chief Mark Katron said the landing gear on the plane apparently malfunctioned, making it difficult for the pilot and co-pilot to steer the plane.

The plane left the runway and came to rest against the airport's security fences. The pilot, co-pilot and one passenger were not injured, emergency crews said.

Officials with the Federal Aviation Administration are expected to arrive Sunday to conduct an investigation. The plane suffered minor damages.
