SANGER, Texas - A student pilot and flight instructor have escaped injury after their plane had engine trouble, clipped a power line then landed on a North Texas highway.

The Texas Department of Public Safety says the emergency landing happened on FM 455 just west of Sanger.

Sgt. Lonny Haschel (HASH'-el) says the single-engine Cessna 152 was damaged in the accident. Haschel says the plane was then pushed into a driveway to avoid traffic on the two-lane road near Sanger, just north of Denton.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the plane had some type of engine problem. Further details weren't immediately available.

About 50 homes and businesses served by CoServ Electric lost power due to the line accident. A spokesman says electricity was restored within about 90 minutes.
