Plane makes emergency landing on Calif. highway
EL DORADO HILLS, Calif. – A small plane made an emergency landing on a highway east of Sacramento, hitting a vehicle.
The California Highway Patrol says both the pilot and driver escaped injury.
The landing closed westbound lanes of Highway 50 in the Sierra Nevada foothills about 30 miles east of Sacramento.
The highway patrol says the plane lost power as the pilot headed toward the Cameron Park Airport, forcing him to land on the highway Saturday morning.
The highway was reopened to traffic after the plane and damaged vehicle were removed.
