Emergency landing on highway in Bronx

12:02 pm on 5 January 2014

A small plane made an emergency landing on an interstate highway in the Bronx in New York on Saturday afternoon.

The single-engine Piper PA28 touched down on the Major Deegan Expressway, somehow avoiding traffic on the busy road.

None of the three people on board were seriously injured.

The BBC reports it is unclear how the plane managed to avoid highway traffic as it landed.
