MOSES LAKE, Wash. (AP) - A small private airplane crash-landed in a waste pond near Moses Lake on Tuesday night. The pilot was the only one onboard and he was not hurt.

The Warden Police Department says 80-year-old pilot Larry Stevenson was flying from Walla Walla to Tonasket at about 10 p.m. Tuesday when he ran low on fuel.

Stevenson, who is from College Place, Washington, opted to land at the Warden airstrip but he came in too fast and crashed the plane near the Washington State Potato Commission office.

The Federal Aviation Administration was notified and is investigating the incident.
