Associated Press

ELKO ” An Elko pilot was uninjured when he landed his experimental plane on Interstate 80 after experiencing mechanical trouble.

Murlyn Ronk was flying from Elko to Wells when his plane experienced low oil pressure just after noon on Monday.

The Nevada Highway Patrol says Ronk made an emergency landing in the westbound lanes of I-80, and passing motorists helped him push the plane off the freeway.
