According to the Pennsylvania State Police at Frackville, the incident occurred around 6:00pm on Friday when Edward Bulgar, of Newburyport, MA, was attempting to land at Joe Zerby Airport in Foster Township and ran out of gas forcing him to land on the nearby Interstate near mile marker 111 between the Hegins and Minersville exits.
