A small private plane made an emergency landing Sunday morning on busy northbound lanes of U.S. 27 in west Broward County.
No one onboard the plane or on the ground was injured, but traffic is being stopped in a section of the highway.
The emergency landing occurred at around 8 a.m. when the pilot encountered mechanical problems and put down the plane on the major roadway in Southwest Ranches, near the Griffin Road exit. He later told authorities oil began to spew from his engine in mid-flight.
The plane had taken off from Opa-Locka Airport and was headed to Sebring.
By 5 p.m., the plane was towed away from the highway.
The emergency landing came two days after three people were killed in a fiery small plane crash in Broward.
