BROWARD COUNTY, Fla. - A small plane made an emergency landing Wednesday afternoon on Interstate 75 in western Broward County.

Sky 10 was above the southbound lanes at 5:45 p.m. as the plane was stopped on the side on the highway near mile marker 33.

Traffic was getting by in the left lane and vehicles were able to move back to the right lane immediately after passing the airplane.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said two people were aboard the Cessna 152 that landed west of U.S. Highway 27.

The plane belongs to Wayman Aviation, a company that works with Miami Dade College. 

A spokesman for Wayman told Local 10 News that in an emergency situation instructors will take over and, in this case, made a "great, safe landing."

It's unclear what forced the pilot to land on the highway.

No injuries were reported.

The FAA is investigating the crash.
