Pilot killed when small plane crashes into Ky. inn

FALLS OF ROUGH, Ky. (AP) - A small plane crashed into the rear
of a two-story inn in Kentucky near a popular state park on Friday,
killing the pilot.
The plane went down around 1:45 p.m. EDT, causing damage to Pine
Tree Inn near Rough River Dam State Resort Park. Officials say the
scene was clear and the fire was out by Friday evening.
Grayson County Coroner Joe Brad Hudson says the man was killed
on impact. Hudson says his name won't be released until family is
notified.
Hudson says one woman at the inn suffered minor injuries and was
treated at the scene.
The park is in the Falls of Rough area of Kentucky, about 95
miles southwest of Louisville. The area bills itself as a prime
boating, camping and fishing spot.
