Plane crash in Delta, Colo.

DELTA, Colo. — A small plane crashed Thursday when the pilot said the aircraft lost power and he tried to land on a highway in Delta.

KREX-TV reported the plane took off from Grand Junction and it went down around 11:30 a.m.

It ended up just shy of U.S. Highway 50. In fact, the plane lost a wheel on the highway during the landing attempt.

Nobody was hurt. Part of the highway was shut down during the investigation.
