Drone crashes into stands during match; no injures
A drone has buzzed over the court during a US Open match in Louis Armstrong Stadium and crashed into an empty section of seats. US Tennis Association spokesman Chris Widmaier said no one was injured and that the New York Police Department was “conducting an ongoing investigation.”
The black device flew diagonally through the arena on Thursday during the next-to-last game of a second-round match that 26th-seeded Flavia Pennetta of Italy won 6-1, 6-4 over Monica Niculescu of Romania. Pennetta said she heard the drone fly by and was not sure what it was.
