Woman Hit in Head by Small Plane

GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) - A Gainesville woman hit in the head by a small plane at Lee Gilmer Airport is recovering.

Police Lieutenant Brian Kelly says 72-year-old William Hohns of Acworth was the pilot of the plane that hit 41-year-old Amy Dunahoo.

Kelly says the left wing of the plane struck the woman when she stepped into its path as the 1977 Piper was taxiing for takeoff Sunday.

She was airlifted to North Fulton Hospital and is reported to be in good condition.

Kelly says it's the first time he's seen a pedestrian-airplane accident.
