Dramatic video shows plane landing on busy New Jersey highway

According to the Stafford Township Police Department, which released the video on Tuesday, one sky dive instructor was treated for a small cut on his arm, but no one was seriously injured, and no vehicles were involved.


The small aircraft has to make an emergency landing after losing power, and narrowly avoids passing vehicles as it touches down.

The single-engine plane was carrying five people when it was forced into the manoeuvre in Stafford Township, New Jersey.

Video of the incident released by police shows the aircraft gliding onto the grass-covered reservation in the middle of the road, narrowly missing passing vehicles.
