The Associated Press reports that New York junior Senator, Hillary
Clinton, narrowly escaped injury in the aircraft that she was piloting
when she was forced to make an emergency landing in Southern New
Jersey
because of bad weather

National Transportation Safety Board officials have issued a
preliminary determination that pilot error contributed to the
accident, and that the Senator was flying a single engine plane in IFR
[instrument flight rating] conditions while only having obtained a VFR
[visual flight rating] rating.

The absence of a post-crash fire was likely due to insufficient fuel
on board. No one on the ground was injured..

Photograph below was taken at the scene shows the extent of damage to
Senator Clinton's aircraft. She was very lucky.

I heard she had reconstructed face surgery after the crash. I'm still trying to figure out if this the before or after pick though.

Later reports indicate that the medications she was on contributed to the landing error.
