A small plane has made an emergency landing on Interstate 4, just north of Orlando, Florida.
The plane lost power, according to Seminole County Fire Rescue, and the pilot had to bring the aircraft down near State Road 434 in Longwood.
The fixed wing, single engine plane is registered to a Kenneth Heitz, of Boyton Beach, Florida.
It remained unclear if there were any passengers on board the aircraft, but authorities say no injuries were reported in the plane or on the ground.
The Florida Highway Patrol says that the plane has landed on eastbound lanes of the road, along a section of pavement that had recently been constructed in the median, as part of the I-4 Ultimate widening project.
Eastbound and westbound lanes are open and moving slowly, but troopers are advising commuters to avoid the area.
