John Denver Unhurt in Plane Accident

From Associated Press

Singer John Denver walked away, apparently uninjured, after a 1931 biplane he was piloting got into an accident while taxiing at an airport, authorities said.

The plane landed in northern Arizona on Thursday afternoon for refueling on a flight from Carefree, Ariz., to Santa Fe, N.M., with only Denver aboard, police and Federal Aviation Administration officials said.

Denver left on another plane without seeking medical attention, police spokeswoman Mary Benavidez said.

Denver, 45, rose to popularity in the 1970s with such hits as "Rocky Mountain High" and "Annie's Song."
