WILSON, N.C. — An aircraft landed on Interstate 95 northbound near Rocky Mount on Wednesday evening, the Federal Aviation Administration said.

Two people were on the plane, including a student pilot. No one was injured, officials at the scene said.

The plane was flying from Smithfield to Wilson when the pilot declared an emergency because of a fuel or mechanical issue. Officials couldn't elaborate on the issue.

The aircraft, a Piper PA-28, landed at 7:25 p.m. about three miles away from the Wilson Industrial Air Center. It was towed to the air center, followed by a caravan of cars, once the Highway Patrol received approval from the Federal Aviation Administration around 9 p.m.

The plane is to be evaluated Thursday morning.
