Plane makes emergency landing in Lexington

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Thirty-nine passengers who were on a flight from Washington, D.C., to Nashville, Tenn., are safe after an emergency landing in Lexington, Ky.

US Airways spokeswoman Valerie Wunder says the pilot had an indication that there may have been engine trouble and made the landing at Blue Grass Airport. Wunder says the plane landed without incident just after 11:30 p.m. EDT Monday.

Local police blocked traffic near the airport as a precaution.

Wunder says the airline offered the flight's passengers ground transportation, or hotels and other flight arrangements.
