MUSKOGEE, Okla. — A plane crashed Saturday afternoon after making an emergency landing on a highway in Muskogee.
The pilot told First Alert Storm Chaser Chase Rutledge, who responded to the crash while flying for the National Guard, that he was over Oklahoma from out of state when his plane lost power and experienced engine failure.
He contacted several people and tried to fly to the Muskogee Airfield.
When the pilot realized the plane wouldn’t make it to the airfield, he decided to attempt an emergency landing on Highway 64 in Muskogee.
As he made an emergency landing on the highway, a wing hit a road sign, causing the plane to crash.
The pilot and a female passenger are OK, Rutledge said.
