A single-engine plane crashed east of Laramie Friday morning on Interstate 80. Albany County Undersheriff Rob DeBree says 67 year old Steven Stam from Holland, Michigan was traveling eastbound around 8am when he experienced engine trouble and was forced to make an emergency landing on the westbound lane of Interstate 80. 

"He actually started to come down into the median area. May have possibly hit the median itself but not bad. And he was able to put it down and skidded off the highway at that location," says DeBree.

A charter plane crash at Laramie Regional Airport has left one man dead. The crash occurred a little before three p-m on Friday…the plane was on fire after the crash but fire trucks responded quickly. The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the crash and the airport will not release additional information until the investigation is complete.
