A small plane crashed soon after takeoff on Wednesday, killing the passenger and injuring the pilot. The pilot radioed to report the problem and tried an emergency landing, skidding across the lawn between two homes and ending up wedged between pine trees in Clifton Park. The six-seat plane had heavy front-end damage but did not catch fire. (AP Photo/The Daily Gazette, Peter R. Barber)
