Cessna plane makes emergency landing on New Jersey freeway

A Cessna airplane managed to reach safely a highway from New Jersey following critical engine problems. Besides the pilot, the aircraft was carrying a journalist -Mike Lankfort-, with the purpose of surveilling and broadcasting the traffic conditions to a certain number of TV and radio stations. The pilot landed on the highway's emergency lane and subsequently created a traffic jam of approximately 2 kilometers. Following the incidend nobody was injured and no vehicle was damaged. "The pilot found a place to land safely on a motorway which is run by 600000-700000 vehicles daily" - the official Joe Orlando said. Fortunately the landing took place around 6.46 A.M when the traffic is less intense.
