Small Plane Makes Emergency Landing On I-55 Near Lincoln

No injuries are reported after a small passenger plane was forced to make an emergency landing, coming down in a traffic lane on northbound Interstate 55 just north of Lincoln Wednesday.

Initial reports say the pilot was attempting to land the aircraft at an airport when a mechanical issue forced him to bring it down on the highway. The plane reportedly clipped a car as it came down in the roadway, but no one was hurt.

The incident slowed traffic on northbound 55 for several hours, and it remains under investigation.
