According to the New York Post, the plane, which had a student pilot on board, made the landing after reporting engine trouble. The single-engine Piper was carrying a 25-year-old pilot and a 36-year-old student.

The California Highway Patrol says the instructor landed the plane and footage taken by a motorist on the freeway shows the aircraft gliding down between cars and rolling along two lanes.

The pilot and student pushed the plane to the freeway shoulder to avoid blocking traffic. The student was attempting to land at a nearby airport when officials say the plane ‘suddenly lost power’.
