Man survives small-plane crash in Anne Arundel

The pilot of a small plane survived after crash landing in the South River near Edgewater, an Anne Arundel County fire official says.

Fire spokesman Lt. Cliff Kooser says the plane crashed near Lee Airport between the Solomon Island Road and Riva Road bridges about 3:20 p.m. Thursday.

Kooser says the pilot was the only one on board the plane and refused treatment after he was brought to shore by a civilian boat.

Television reports from the scene showed the plane had sunk. Kooser says a county dive team and hazardous material team were assisting the Coast Guard and state police.

These private plane "accidents" seem to be on the increase across the country. Not unusual are accompanying fatalities.

How about if your airplane kills somebody, assuming you survive, you can't fly for two years, and thereafter only after a special inspection board approves?
