Motorists' Surprise as Plane Makes Emergency Landing on California Freeway

It didn’t take Holly Clark and her friend long to see what the holdup was when traffic came to a stop on the 101 Freeway in Agoura Hills, California, on May 31. Video from their vehicle shows a plane had landed there.

The landing prompted the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department to close part of the freeway.

The California Highway Patrol told media that a student and an instructor pilot were on board the light aircraft. The instructor was able to take over and land the plane safely. No injuries were reported.
