WESTON, Florida  — A Cessna 172N Skyhawk made an emergency landing in the median of Interstate 75 in Weston on Friday afternoon, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

The plane was on a training flight, according to Nazaria Noor, an owner of SkyDuo Flight Academy, which is based in Opa-Locka. The flight instructor and student pilot on board are both OK, Noor said.

“They’re both OK,” Noor said. “Even the plane doesn’t have any damage. They were able to control it and land it perfectly without any scratch.”

The Florida Highway Patrol said it appeared that engine failure was the reason for the emergency landing near mile marker 37, but Noor said the reason was uncertain. He said the Federal Aviation Administration is on the scene and the plane will be towed as soon as possible.

FHP said no cars were damaged during the emergency landing but the left northbound lane of the highway was closed for a short time. The highway was fully reopened by 2 p.m.
