Pilot's Car at Airport Causes Bomb Scare

The Georgetown, Texas airport was evacuated and a bomb squad was on the scene after a man flew from the airport Thursday morning and crashed his plane into a building housing nearly 200 federal tax employees.

However, federal authorities told CBS News the airport was declared all clear and no bomb was found in Joseph Stack's vehicle.

All planes scheduled to land at Georgetown Airport were being re-routed to Austin Bergstrom Airport in Austin while the vehicle was searched, reported CBS affiliate KEYE in Austin.

Earlier Thursday, Stack was killed after crashing his small plane into an office building containing nearly 200 IRS employees, setting off a raging fire that sent workers fleeing for their lives.
