Small Plane in Emergency Landing on N.J. Highway

HACKENSACK, N.J.-- Authorities in northern New Jersey say a small plane made an emergency landing on busy Interstate 80 in Hackensack.

The Bergen County Prosecutor's Office says the plane made a controlled landing on the eastbound express lanes at about 2:30 p.m. Monday after a fuel line malfunction prevented it from returning to Teterboro Airport.

No injuries were reported.

The aircraft is owned by the U.S. Justice Department and was being used for a training flight for the prosecutor's office's homeland security efforts.

A flight instructor and law enforcement officer were on board.

A crew removed the plane from the highway on a flatbed truck.
