Emergency Landing in Sumner County, Tennessee - No Injuries

A pilot who had picked up a plane in Kokomo, Indiana and flew it to someone in another state evidently had make an emergency landing in Christiana Thursday afternoon. The man reported that as he was flying the aircraft something went wrong and the small prop plane started to leak oil. The pilot spotted a safe area to land along Miller Road near Epps Mill Road and safely put the single engine plane down. A friend of the pilot flying a second plane behind him landed at the Murfreesboro Municipal Airport and received a ride to his stranded friend in Christiana.  We are told that no injuries were sustained in the emergency landing. Miller Road is near I-24 in Rutherford County.
