Traveler information causes delays
"(06-30) 16:15 PDT OAKLAND -- A small airplane carrying a traffic reporter for KCBS radio was forced to crash land in an Oakland rock quarry just south of the Interstate 80 approach to the Bay Bridge this afternoon, authorities said.
The pilot of the Cessna 172 suffered minor injuries and the reporter was unharmed when the plane touched down hard just before 1 p.m. at 2020 Wake Ave., near the East Bay Municipal Utility District's wastewater treatment plant, said Oakland fire Capt. Melinda Drayton.
The 35-year-old pilot was treated at a hospital for a cut to his forehead. His name was not released. KCBS identified the reporter as Alan Brooks.
Motorists using a nearby off-ramp were delayed briefly."
